Notes

Abstract:
The back reads: Stone parapets with a few old cannons and sentry tower. Construction of this Fort begun by Felipe II of Spain in 1597. Captured by the pirate Henry Morgan in 1671, repaired by the Viceroy of New Granada in 1718, the Fort was demolished again by Admiral Vernon in 1740, but rebuilt in its present form in 1752 and finally abandoned 100 years later.
