Fortín La Galera, Juan Griego

4.5
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 Sundowner!
  • Excellent view of Juan Griego from the top. Very fresh and strong air currents are received. View towards the beach La Galera and the Laguna de los Mártires. They could have a little more of the story to take advantage of the visit. Considerable care site.

  • From here you can see the Bay of Juan Griego and one of the most beautiful sunsets of Margarita. The Fort history told by the children of the place is very entertaining
