  • This fort is by the Hilton. It was closed when I was there. Still, it is nice to walk around the surrounding area, and one can get great shots of Condado, the beaches, and Miramar.  more »

  • It is open but still under construction. Nice to be able to experience the landmark and do a little research about it.
  • Its a shame this structre is closed,because they can repair it. But it is still amazing that its still standing. The views from this area are fantastic. You can see the damage it took from the hurricane.
