Fuerte San Geronimo

Fortín de San Gerónimo was built to replace the original "El Boqueron" that was destroyed in 1598 by the British Navy. After the completion, and the renovation of other forts in San Juan, San Geronimo became the first line of defense in the case of an attack.


Visitors to San Juan who want to visit the fort will need to go through the Caribe Hilton Hotel, which is the organization that manages the fort. You will need to contact them for up to date information as to accessibility, as they have been known to close it to the public for various reasons.
