  • From the outside you can't get a good impression what the fort looks like or what it is all about. Once inside and after an introduction video you will found out what the fort is about and how it look...  more »

  • English guide was great! Solid piece of Peru history here. Impressive viarety to the tour. Don't be deterred by the armed guards in full gear at the front door on north side of fort , it is the main entrance. This is a live military base so don't go in and wander. I dont recommend walking around the exterior of the fort, people kept warning me that my bag would be stolen.
  • Great place to learn quite a few things about Peruvian history. Tickets for the tour are less than 3 dollars p/p
  • Here you can touch history. Not really well maintained neither really friendly hosts, but if you get a good guide you can learn a lot of Spaniards conquest of America and a little about pirates as well.
  • Great place to go to see the history
  • OK . ESTA CERCA A MI CASA A 1 KM
