old Puerto Rico fort, that kept them under Spanish rule Dec 20, 2015
The El Morro fort (Castillo San Felipi del Morro) is the first thing you see as you enter San Juan harbor. We got up early on the Royal Cribbean cruise ship and made it up to the top deck on port side in time to see del Morrow fort coming into photo opp range. I was on the edge of the ship where I need not shoot through people or glass. At the right moment I fired off some shots with my obsolite camera.

We made port and I took my camera and wife and started to walk. We stopped a while at the old rum museum for a few quick free drinks. (Not long after my visit they closed the rum museum.) We started out with a long steep uphill walk in old San Juan to reach the fort. I cant remember what the small fee was for enterance.

There are several levels to the fort. They have an ample supply of cannons and ammo there. There are a lot of small stone rooms with a little shooting hole where a sniper can shoot in relative safety.

We walked around for at least three hours seeing a bunch of impressive fortifications.

Then it was time to leave because we ran out of water, and we herd the buffet calling us from the ship.
