Fortín La Galera, Juan Griego

(4.5/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Mix a historical experience with views of natural scenery when you visit Fortín La Galera. The fort was once used by rebels to fight Spanish forces in the early 19th century--rebels fought valiantly until an error caused an explosion which killed most of them. Due to the fort’s strategical placement, it commands a remarkably open view of the surrounding land and waterways. Take time to appreciate the structure of the fort before heading to the outer walls to take in the view.

  • Great place to watch the sunset. Highly recommended. That if you don't do it one Sunday afternoon, since they will not find a single person (except that go on excursion)
