Fortín Santiago de la Caranta

Fortín Santiago de la Caranta Review

Located on the east side of the harbor are the ruins of Fortín Santiago de la Caranta, built between 1586 and 1595. Although destroyed by dutch pirates in 1926, you can still see several of the original cannons pointing toward the ocean. This is an excellent place to snap photographs of the surrounding area.
