Fort San Juan de Ulúa - Mexico

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Venture Realty International

Fort San Juan de Ulúa is located on an island and is part of the City of Veracruz, Mexico.  This island is the site where the Spanish first landed in their conquest of Mexico.

Fort San Juan de Ulúa protected the city from foreign nations and from pirates.  It was started in 1582 and completed in 1707.  The fort has been used as a prison and now is a tourist attraction with a very interesting museum.

Toni, Thank you. I'm glad you like the pictures and the tour.  Have a great day. 

Mary, Thank you.  I hadn't thought about it, but it is similar to San Juan.

Hi Gary,

We just love your pictures of all these historic sites, I did not know better from your description I would have sworn that these pictures were taken in Europe, interesting how the entire style and design was transplanted in to the "new world"

thanks for sharing these.

Peter & Linda, Thank you.  I agree, if I didn't have my pictures in folders on the computer, I could easily mix up photos of Europe with Latin America.  I am really glad that we have some of these styles and designs much closer to us than across the ocean.
