Photographer's Note

The Ozama fortress was built from 1502 to 1508 by the Spaniards, in medieval style, at the entrance to Santo Domingo and overlooking the Ozama river, to protect the city from pirates. Named after this river, the fortress is the oldest formal military construction of European origin in America.
