EL MORRO Construction on this Old San Juan fort began all the way back in the 16th century, just 50 years after Columbus arrived in the New World. Overlooking San Juan Bay, the wide open fort has cannonballs, parapets, sentry boxes, tunnels and staircases to explore. Since the time it was built, the fort has seen more than its share of action, having defended itself against everyone from Sir Francis Drake in 1595, to the Dutch, British and American militaries in the centuries that followed. Today, El Morro is a World Heritage Site maintained by the U.S. National Parks Service.
