Fodor's Review

At the eastern tip of Puerta de Tierra, this tiny fort is perched on a hilltop like an afterthought. Added to San Juan's fortifications in the 16th century, it became an essential part of San Juan's first line of defense and guarded the entrance into the city. It's closed to the public, but if you're intent on seeing it, go to the entrance of the Caribe Hilton or the new, luxurious Plaza Caribe development.
