Photographer's Note

"La Fortaleza" is a sixteenth century medieval castle built by the Spanish at the entrance to Santo Domingo. Overlooking the Ozama River it is the oldest military construction still standing in America (dating from 1502). In more recent times the castle served as a prison until the 1960s.
