This was nice to see while in Trujillo. I don't think they have dedicated as much to conserving this fort as the one in Omoa, but it still gives you a taste of old Spanish Colonialism.

The fort itself is rather rundown, but there are some great views along the coast. The town of Trujillo is quite quaint and worth wandering around. Not much infrastructure in the town for tourists, but the area is scenic and the locals are friendly. Hope...More

Great fort in the heart of Trujillo with lots of history and amazing views. The price was very affordable and the fort was one of my favorite attractions in Trujillo.
