  • Gorgeous fort from the colonial era. The collection is very nice including native artifacts, modern paintings and old paintings. Views from this site are spectacular. The staff is willing to answer your questions, however the museum is self guided
  • Great tourist spot to visit to learn the history of Vieques. There is usually an art showing happening of a local artist in the building as well. Great photo opportunity area.
  • The Sunset was sureal! The best I have EVER SEEN, and I lived in Hawaii for 4 years. A MUST SEE in Vieques. There is a small food cart with amazing Bacaolitos and other fried fare. We were there during the Vieques cultural festival which was an amazing time. Overall great place to stop by and watch the sunset.
  • Nice place for some history of Vieques Island. Sites are beautiful from the fort. People personal atended your visit and glady answers any question. Great scenery from the fort walls. They even have a small gift shop. They recently are working on new painting at one of its halls. Come and visit so you can enjoy some history as well!
  • This is must see place on Vieques. There are beautiful views of the island, and it's a place full of history. The guide is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the fort, the island, and Puerto Rico. There's a museum on the second level with a lot of information and artifacts. A gift shop is on the first floor. It's a tight entrance at the gate going up the hill to the fort, you'll want to go up the road, turn around, and come at the entrance straight on. Don't try to turn into it.
