Description: Without doubt, the greatest fortress built by the Spanish during the colonial era. It was originally built between 1639 and 1657, and expanded in 1762. The castle is located on the Hill of San Lázaro in a strategic location, dominating approaches to the city by land or sea. It shows the military engineering of the time, with its endless tunnels that were used to deliver supplies and ease evacuation.
