Fortín (Little Fort)

Fortín (Little Fort) Review

On the north side of the Parque Central in its own little park stands a strange tower. Built as a military post in the 1870s, it never did see action and now serves as a symbol of the province, one of the few military monuments in this army-less country. The tower is closed to the public. The old brick building next to the Fortín is the Palacio Municipal (Town Hall). To the east of the fort, the tile-roof building with the handsome wood veranda is the recently restored Casa de la Cultura, which almost always has a free exhibition by local artists. Inside is a very small museum of town history, as well as a handsome inner atrium, with wooden galleries, where concerts are often held.
