Castillo Del Morro

Castillo Del Morro

CUBA / Havana / Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro.

Built in 1589, El Morro Castle as it is locally known is a fortress that stands at the entrance to Havana Bay. In the 17th century Spanish fleets carrying treasure from the new world would stop at Havana before their Atlantic crossing. Because of it’s strategic position in the Caribbean the port was subject to regular attacks. Every night at 9.00pm the castle guards would fire one round of artillery to inform the citizens of Havana to take refuge behind the fortress walls. This tradition of firing the cannon still takes place today.
