Simply stunning
Aug. 2016
Wow. Simply wow!
Serene, historic and an amazing view!
The entire site is just historic. From the cobble stones, to the canons to the restored building you actually feel the history. Signs are also bi-lingual, adding to your history lesson.
The view is just stunning! The entire region of Juan Griego is on display. The sea and fishing port look stunning from this view!
A definite must see when in Margarita!

Nice spot for pictures
Mar. 2016 • Friends
Might be an interesting spot for history buffs, but I was more interested in the vista. Beautiful views from a high vantage point! Excellent place for panoramas. We stopped here as part of an excursion on the CDF Horizon.

Nicest viewpoint on Margarita Island
Nov. 2015 • Couples
We went there on an excursion with the CDF Horizon and this proved to be the nicest picture taking spot of the day ! The bus leaves you at the top of the hill and there are only a few steps to climb to get to the remains of the fortification (Fortin) . Once there , there is a spot where refreshments and souvenirs are available and sometimes a local would offer his services as a guide for a few bucks .
The views all around are fabulous ! If it is still there and you wonder what it is , the red colored patch of water is the dangerous red algae !

Excelent sunset

Photo lovers or nature lovers should go to this place. Its altitude and position provides a great view of the bay. The final result is a wonderful sunset. Take care with the time to don't be late.

Great view, nice little fort
Apr. 2015 • Couples
The fort is well restored, with a couple of cannons and nice walk-arounds. It's a little small, but the view is amazing.

Good view of Juan Griego
Jan. 2015 • Solo
If you want have a great view of Juan Griego and la Galera beach, walk up to the fortin or take a taxi. The view is beautiful. For some dollars, you can also have a kid telling you the history of the site.

Nice views
Good place to visit for views of the surrounding area. The fort itself is really nothing special, although it has been reconstructed so as to be in quite good condition.
