Your experience

Description

For almost 350 years, the Fort San Juan de Ulúa in Veracruz served as the most important military stronghold of the Spanish Empire in America. Step back in time with a tour guide and learn about his life as a colonial fortress, presidential palace, prison and more. Then visit the port of Veracruz and Boca del Río and see some great historical sites!

You wouldn't have wanted to be in San Juan de Ulúa 300 years ago. This impressive fortress may have been built of oyster shells, turtle eggs, sand and salt water, but its prison cells contained far more frightening things (and people - gulp).

Immerse yourself in the facts and legends surrounding one of the oldest fortresses in the Gulf of Mexico. Learn about some of the region's greatest historical events, from the storage of grain to the imprisonment of some of the country's most feared prisoners

Look at the salt-covered walls, enjoy the creepy atmosphere and be glad that you are let out alive!

On this panoramic city tour you will also visit the port of Veracruz and Boca del Río and experience some of the best sights, from the Maritime Customs Building, the train station, the historic city center, the Baluarte de Santiago and others. It is a real life history lesson!
