Santo Domingo, the fortress

5.0 stars


The fortress

As many of the attractions of Santo Domingo, the fortress is also the first of its kind in the Americas. It's actually the first building with military functions. It has a beautiful tower, where you can climb and have terrific views on the sea and part of the city. There also is a room where they used to stock the gunpowder. The whole fortress was used for keeping the weapons, the big cannons and it was obviously, mainly built for defense against attacks by sea. When you visit it, you will see a statue, which depicts the patron saint of the army, Santa Barbara. The whole building is worth visiting. The entrance fee is very cheap and you get a leaflet that explains the main parts of the fortress. [more ]
