Conde de Mirasol - the fort



The last military structure the Spaniards started in the Wester hemisphere. It has never been finished and never been involved in a battle. It served as a jail for a while. It has been restaured in the 1990's. Currently, the fortress hosts the permanent exposition of the island history. There was an exposition of local artists' paintings, ceramics, and caricatures during our visit.
