El Morro – ever protecting Puerto Rico

Recently I had the chance to revisit Puerto Rico and spent most of my time touring the fort called El Morro. This six story fortress was created by Spain in the 16th Century to guard a most important harbor in the New World.  I was impressed by the beauty of the structure.  Even though it was mainly a utilitarian building, there is a beauty to it as exemplified by the small decorated structure on the left.  If ever in PR, be sure to spend some time here.  It is well worth it!

About Anne Pflug

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
