Afterwards, we will drive to Castillo de San Felipe, a strong fort built on top of a mountain by the Spanish as a strategic point to gain control of the bay, where incredible battles were fought during many centuries. There we’ll have the opportunity to discover from the outside the impressive architecture and history behind this fort.
