  • Site with the best view of the city, and historical worth come and take some pictures, understand why these sites as high buildings were built to safeguard cities and ports, the heat and the Sun are harsh, bring CAP and water because here there There is nothing open, surveillance, if you have luck arrived guides. could not see inside because this closed, there are a few notices of turn politicians who are abhorrent that they have nothing to do with the historic site

  • If you go to Puerto Cabello you must visit the Solano fortress. It is perfectly preserved, have a 360 port view and is wonderful if you like history. With GPS you arrive without problem. It is closed on Mondays and they work until 3 or 4 pm the rest of the days. I recommend to find out about the history of the Fort before you go, at the entrance there is a group of workers, but none made tours or guides for the site. It carries also CAP or hat and water, because the Sun and the heat there are harsh.

  • Well preserved remains (restored rather recently) of a lookout Fort guarding the coasts of Puerto Cabello. The road to well preserved, a few minutes by car from the motorway which passes through the city. The Fort itself is small, good state of cleanliness and from where you park you have to walk but a short distance. A place where to eat, we miss you note that until recently was, although it is now dismantled. Views of the city of port hair are spectacular, including the Harbour, the rada and the naval base on the one hand, and clear atmosphere airport and its track on the other. Final recommendation, take water that hits the heat. Time of the visit 1 hour easy.

  • El Fortín Solano monument historic national park St. Stephen the independence of #Venezuela history in the San Esteban National Park treasures #Fortín Solano, located in the municipality Puerto Cabello in the State of Carabobo, the last colonial fortification built in Venezuela, designed as a national historic monument since on October 29, 1965, according to official Gazette N ° 27.876. Solano fortress, also known as Mirador de Solano, was built in 1766 by orders of the Captain General of the province, José Solano y Bote, who directed the construction of the Fort in the so-called peak of el Vigia, because the visibility of the four cardinal points was perfect to monitor and protect the cities of Puerto Cabello and Valencia from naval attacks. The emblematic fortification was built with slave labor and prisoners brought from La Guaira and the Castle San Felipe, and with local materials in the area, like quarry stones and rocks of the San Esteban River and some hills of the around. This military fortress not only served as a prison to hold heads of realistic troops, but it also keeps the history of important clashes that occurred in the year 1813 as part of the Admirable Campaign, as well as the military, known as the Porteñazo rebellion, that originated in the early morning of June 2, 1962, against the Government of Rómulo Betancourt. #ConoceVenezuela #Historia #PuertoCabello #FortinSolano #Valencia #fortaleza #Venezuela #Patrimonio
