“You must go, at least for the gardens.”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

If you visit Havana, unless you have best views of the city, your visit will never be complete. Like a panoramic 360 degree view from resaurante La Torre, the breathtaking landscape of Malecon + Old Town + Plaza Vieja can only be seen from this view point.

Just tell to your taxi driver (or drive your rental car) to go through the tunnel and this is the first exit to the right. Entry for the park itself is 2 CUC/pp. Even if you avoid visit of the castles, you must go for the view point.

“WOW”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

We toured this fort last year but I went quickly in again this year to deliver some photos to a fellow who befriended us last year. But the real reason was to go to the fabulous little restaurant below the fort. The 12 Apostles. They have a delicious fish strips appetiser that we just had to have again. And there is nothing quite like a Buccanero in the shade after a hot day in the sun.

“Only if you have extra time”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

A fort like any other in the Caribbean. Provides some great photo shots of Old Havana on the other side of the Bay but otherwise it is a distant second to the larger and more impressive Fortaleza de San Carlos

If you can catch the sunset you will have great photos.
