Fort San Juan de la Cruz

Part of the San Juan National Historic Site, Fort San Juan de la Cruz is a small fort that stands in ruins of El Cañuelo Island at the western entrance to San Juan Bay. Dating back to the 1630s, what's left of the fort isn't much, and a trip to the island is often overlooked by tourists unless they want to take in a panoramic view of Old San Juan.
