Fortín La Galera, Juan Griego

(4.5/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • For many years this was my favorite vacation spot which girl I enjoyed with my family now I was with my spouse and children and although everything is different saves its essence is a place to evoke the past and the battles that were fought there seems a special place... the galley beach is super good I recommend it...!

  • is a linda experience touring the Fortin of the galley, to know a small portion of the history of the island. Do it on tour and then enjoy a beach nearby.
