The oldest fortress in The Americas… MORE
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, the fortress served a different purpose, being used by Dominican dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo to hold political prisoners.
While there is not too much to see at the fortress, it is worth a quick visit to see the historic site and view of the city and Caribbean sea from on top of the Tower of Homage.
