(4/5 based on 80+ 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. Make Fortin de San Geronimo del Boqueron part of your personalized San Juan itinerary using our San Juan trip itinerary builder.
