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.

  • Magic and one of the best views of the island, is a place full of culture! Eatar there see the flag of Venezuela and the Sun entering the sea do not have prices! So a visit! If a child tells him that if he tells you the story I suggest say no and give any tip! If says that if because of a very good tip! Comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes are preferably closed! Type 5:45 arrive and so they can park! To see the sunset leave the place to continue enjoying

  • A nice view of Juan Griego and its sunsets. It is necessary to arrive before 17:30 because it is then forbidden to upload to this site. It can be reached by taxi or private car.
