You will learn the history of the island, you will see various objects on display but also how the U.S. army has made it a training place with bombs against money ringing and stumbling at the expense of its inhabitants. We met an American from Boston who fell in love with this island a long time ago and never returned to the mainland. It is inexhaustible and it is a delight to listen to it. Admission is free!
no solo playa tiene vieques, en el fortin puedes encontrar mas de la historia de vieques, sus inicios y como se ha ido desarrollando, tiene un museo bien documentando y el fortin esta bien restaurado.... more »not only beach has vieques, in the fortin you can find more of the history of vieques, its beginnings and as it has been developed, has a well documented museum and the fortin is well restored. worth the visit. You can walk if you're in Elizabeth II.
Pleasant little stop that gives you some history you might not have known otherwise about the island. Just wish there was a bit more to it. Also seemed like there was a good amount more to the fort interior that you dont see. Still, a good way to kill an hour.
This is an old Spanish fortress. Canon's are still present. When we were there the museum was closed, but just walking around the grounds is lovely.
