  • Description Colonial Fortress: Morrillo Fort, Matanzas. Cuba

    Declared a National Monument in 1978, it is a preserved military construction at the mouth of the Canimar River, in the city of Matanzas. It is located in one of the fortresses that protected the city from the constant attacks of pirates, and it adopted its present day look around 1830. Pieces of aborigine archaeology are on exhibit, since the fortress was constructed in the middle of the largest settlement of Cuba’s first inhabitants. Two of the patriots that fought for independence: Antonio Guiteras and the Venezuelan Carlos Aponte, chose this place to organise an expedition to Mexico. After being ratted on, they were surprised and murdered on this site on May 8th of 1935.

  • Morrillo Fort is located in Matanzas
  • For over two centuries, in recognition of its rich cultural life, Matanzas has been known as "Cuba's Athens." For obvious reasons, it is also called "the city of bridges.",

    The city was founded on the shores of a beautiful bay in 1693. At that time, it was called San Carlos y San Severino de Matanzas. Its splendid buildings are eclectic in style.,

    The area surrounding the city has some singularly beautiful features. The Pan de Matanzas (Matanzas Bread Loaf) Hill and the Yumurí Valley are particularly entrancing. Places to visit in the city include the Sauto Theater, the Triolet Drug Store and the San Carlos Church.,

    Immortalized by painters, poets and musicians, Matanzas is just a few minutes' drive from Varadero Beach and near the Zapata Peninsula.,

    The city of Matanzas, capital of the province of the same name, is in northwestern Cuba, 100 km. (62 miles) east of Havana and around 18 minutes from Varadero Beach. An excellent highway links Matanzas with the nation's capital.
