(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.

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.
