Photographer's Note

The castillo de la real fuerza is located on the western side of the harbour in Vieja Havana. Originally built to defend against attack by pirates, it suffered from a poor strategic position, being too far inside the bay. The fort is "considered to be" the oldest stone fort in the Americas, and was listed in 1982 as part of the Unesco world heritage site. Scanned picture. Source : wiki modified
