Orientation to El Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico

Castillo San Felipe del Morro is the uncontested highlight of Old San Juan. Before starting your exploration of this San Juan National Historic Site, become familiar with the surrounding landmarks. In the upper left corner is the lighthouse in the middle of El Morro, the old Spanish fort. Side-by-side on the hill are the San Antonio Bastion Guardhouse (1897) on the left and the Powder Magazine (1783) on the right. The middle masonry wall is San Antonio Bastion (1783) and the nearest crenelated wall is Santa Rosa Bastion (1783). The pink dome between them is the Cemetery Chapel (1862). In the foreground is Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery (1814).
