The Caribbean Coast Sights

Castillo de San Antonio de la Eminencia

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

Overlooking Cumaná from its hilltop perch, Castillo de San Antonio de la Eminencia is one of two forts commissioned in the 1680s to protect what was at the time the world's largest salt deposit. The four-point fort was built entirely of coral and outfitted with 16 guns.
