Fodor's Review

Pampatar was founded nearly 400 years ago. Its strategic importance is clear when you visit the star-shaped Castillo San Carlos de Borromeo on the waterfront in the center of town. Constructed entirely of coral, the fort was rebuilt by the Spanish in 1622 after the original was destroyed by Dutch pirates.
