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.

    The Fortin the galley located in a strategic site with spectacular view of the city of Juan Griego. Beach La Galera, the Marites lagoon and Macanao Peninsula. The site is ideal to watch the sunset. An important fact. All the world you called Fortín de La Galera, but his Real name is Fortin Spain

    Beautiful view of the remains of the Fort. The place has good maintenance, has sites for refreshments. Ideal for photo. In the surroundings there are children and young people who tell the story of the site, very picturesque.

    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.
