  • I really enjoyed my visit to this fort. I learned about Peruvian history, military wise, here and appreciated the hands-on experience. The tour guide and narrator, Gladys, was the best.  more »
  • Dominates the ocean by the port of Callao a few miles from the heart of Lima. Very well preserved and an interesting visit. Has a nice museum. Important to the defense of Lima in the 19th century.....  more »
  • Neat bit of history you can go around and explore. That part of Lima is a little grimy but still beautiful! Definitely worth a few soles to take a taxi there and look around.
