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.

  • Most beautiful place I've ever seen across America. Time of sunset, birds flying over boats three handles, as they say here. I have no words to describe. Sun setting within the Caribbean, unforgettable!

  • It is a small but full of history and its location leaves a beautiful panoramic view of the coast and on the back of mangroves. You can nurture their knowledge and take some beautiful pictures from there or just to watch the sunset.
