Photographer's Note

Castille San Felipe del Morro (aka El Morro), Puerto Rico's largest, most well preserved, and most impressive Spanish colonial fortress, sits at the northwest corner of the city of Old San Juan, guarding the mouth of San Juan's impressive harbor. The site is now a part of the National Park Service's Historic San Juan park. Turrets like the one you see here can be found all over Old San Juan, as part of the former city walls, but most are either better preserved or more carefully rebuilt than this one (see my WS for one of the preserved turrets) This particular example seems to have born the weight of the nearly 500 years it has watched over the harbor.
