Categories: Monuments, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.
