Castillo San Felipe del Morro, the fortress across the broad field in front of you, protected San Juan Harbor. It is part of an extensive fortification system built by Spain over a 250-year period. The major surviving parts of these fortifications—-which you can visit today—- make up San Juan National Historic Site.
