Puerto Rico Diary Part 3: Castles and Cemeteries


The San Felipe Castle, also known as El Morro, sits on a hill facing the North most point of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was designed to defend the port in the Spanish Colonial era and was built between 1539-1587. The Fort still stands today and is the most highly visited location in Puerto Rico. Both tourists and locals frequent this spot for many reasons. Tourists go into the castle to take the historical tours and locals enjoy a lovely Sunday afternoon of kite flying and picnicking on the grounds that surround the castle. My best friend Kat and I love to go for wine picnics, lol. This time, she dared me to climb the wall overlooking the National Cemetery to watch the sunset. I hadn't done that in over 12 years. It was absolutely stunning! I'm gonna miss her so much! Until next time, dear friend...

El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, tambien conocido como El Morro, yace sobre una colina hacia el punto extremo norte de San Juan, Puerto Rico. Fue diseñado para proteger los puertos en la era del Colonialismo Español y construido entre 1539 y 1587. El Fuerte aún sigue de pie y es la atracción turística más visitada en Puerto Rico. Tanto turistas como locales frecuentan el lugar por múltiples razones. El turista tiende a tomar los tours históricos guiados y los locales "vuelan chiringa" y hacen picnic en las tardes los Domingos. Mi mejor amiga, Kat y yo nos gusta hacer picnics con vino, jeje. En esta ocasión, ella me retó a trepar la pared  que mira sobre el Cementerio Nacional para ver el atardecer, cosa que no había hecho hace más de 12 años. Fue verdaderamente espectacular! Que mucho la voy a extrañar! Hasta pronto, querida amiga...
