El Morro, Havana

4.3
Explore the 16th-century fortified castle at El Morro. Built to protect Havana's harbor from ongoing raids, the site now affords visitors wonderful views of the city, especially at sundown. If you’re interested in history, you'll enjoy your walk around the fortress. However, you'll be exposed to the elements during much of your stroll, so check the weather before you visit. Pop into the onsite maritime museum for accounts of epic sieges, then consider climbing up the lighthouse for a small extra charge. See El Morro and all Havana has to offer by arranging your trip with our Havana day trip tool .

  • He's one of Havana's must-sees. But there is so much, so much and so good in this city, that it would be unfair to say that it is of the best

  • Castillo de los Tres reyes del Morro is the full name of one of Havana's most recognizable symbols, which everyone knows simply as El Morro. Contemplating it from the wall of the boardwalk is one of the greatest pleasures that can be enjoyed in life and is the photo that is not lacking in every trip to the Havana capital.
