Castillo San Felipe del Morro
With a history that dates back 500 years, this stone structure truly deserves its place of honor in the National Historic Register. The English and the Dutch attacked El Morro or Castillo San Felipe del Morro repeatedly in its time. Located on the San Juan Bay, the six-story fort was originally constructed in 1540, although its exterior walls were not erected for another 200 years. Inside the walls is a veritable labyrinth of chambers, barracks, hallways and prison cells. The fort was given a complete facelift in 1992.
Every time I visit Puerto Rico, I have to visit El Morro. I feel history whenever I visit El Morro. Every time I visit El Morro I feel like it is my first time there. I feel so calmed. The water surrounding the castle is so blue and magestic. My favorite places is the Morro is the old church and the Light House.
If you ever go to Puerto Rico and only get to go to one place, go to San Juan and all down in Old San Juan. The people, history, atmosphere, just everything is great! You'll just have to go there to understand and you'll never forget
the morro is a place that you would go with your family and fly kites, or look back at history is amazing never been to a place were there is so much to do, for you guys that never been to puerto rico need to really go you would love it the food is great the people are very kind just being over there made me happy,the most part i like about the morro is the canos.
