  • Before starting the tour show you a video on the history of the place, then it is a tour of its facilities for approximately 1 hour. From the Tower of the Queen it has a spectacular view, don't forget your cameras ;) This well preserved! The place has parking, souvenir shop, snack. Recently they are renting bikes to make a tour of their facilities by 25 soles aprox.

  • It is a very good choice to spend the afternoon at La Punta, Callao. All very well maintained. The guide knows very well the story so it is recommended

  • Although the guide was Spanish, I could understand a good amount of the tour. I know Spanish however, so my experience may be different from that of someone who doesn't. The guide was very informative and entertaining, learned a lot about the colonial history of Peru and the War of the Pacific.
  • Good and beautiful place for tour and pass time.its old Fort for knowing about history of lima and Peru.many tourist information is also available here.
  • A flash back to the colonial times of Lima, when Spain was its conquerer. Adjacent area has lots of fish restaurants close by to have lunch. Walk it off by exploring the area and seeing the new additions surrounding the Spanish fortress. You have to be vigilant of the local low life.
  • Gorgeous place, we hope to come back in the future. No English tour guide though.
  • What a great tour, and the history were amazing. Many opportunities for pictures and views. Close to the point with lots of cebiche restaurants. Many cannons and words, but be watchfully of the ghost pirates, they are real.
