Free Images of Puerto Rico - El Morro Fortress

Note on large files:  Very large files may be bigger than your screen.  
Right click on any portion of the image showing and chose "save as". 

 


Our photographs of Puerto Rico begin with Castillo San Felipe del Morro which is also known as Fort San Felipe del Morro or Morro Castle although there are actually no forts in Old San Juan.  The structure  was designated as a castle and later mistakenly identified as a fort by the US government.   

El Morro (meaning "The Promontory") was designed and built in the 1500's by the Spanish in order to guard the entrance to San Juan Harbour from their European enemies.  It is located at the tip of Old San Juan and is a National Historic Site as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

El Morro has walls over 20 feet thick and has a natural rocky coastline for defense.  Across the water is the small El  Cauelo fort that helped El Morro guard the entrance to the bay.

The large lawn leading to the castle was at one time converted into a golf course by the US but is now used for picnics and flying kites.  The fort is divided into six levels and includes dungeons, barracks, passageways and storerooms.  The image of The Garita or sentry box is one of Puerto Rico's most iconic symbols.
