The tour was nice but unfortunately the distraction of maneuvering the place took away from the self audio tour and I missed most of the information on it.

This is a very interesting place to visit and also learns a little about the history of the Dominican Republic and the battle for independence.
You are provided with an audio help and then you are allowed to show yourself around and take as many pictures as wanted!
Outside of the forte there is a statue honouring the líder on the battle to freedom, according to our guide,who’s famous words were “ Rather die fighting for freedom then live as a slave” ...very interesting in deed!
