Welcome to El Morro by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

This is part of “El Castillo San Felipe del Morro”, also known as El Morro, which is a citadel built between the 16th and 18th centuries in San Juan, Puerto Rico. You’ll enjoy a view of the Atlantic Ocean, Old San Juan, the cemetery, and La Perla, a neighborhood built outside the wall from the higher levels. I enjoy visiting this place because of its history of African slaves and native Indians. I enjoy so much shooting photos of this Island. This is one of my favorite places to visit.
