(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Go on a self-guided tour around Fortin de San Geronimo del Boqueron, which dates back to the beginning of the 17th century. The small fort played a significant role in 1797, when it defended the Spanish army from British attacks. Largely intact, the architecture provides important insight into the building style of the colonial era. You'll find no informational signage here, so try to come as part of a guided tour or with a well-informed local friend.

  • Pretty walk along the Condado Lagoon to walk back to this fort. There are spots for good water views, but the actual fort was closed.  more »
  • You will do a bit of walking but it worth every step. You wont get better views of the Ocean from anywhere And the history and construction will amaze  more »
  • History at its best! Here youll see over 500 years of history when the time the Spanish Conquistadors lived here! The small fort is a one of a kind in the world! and is run by the US!  more »
