This is Havana’s oldest fortress; the original, built on the site by Hernando de Soto to protect the port, was constructed in 1538. This is the New World’s second most ancient castle and now serves as the Museum of Arms, with many fine exhibits. It also houses the nerve centre of UNESCO’s building preservation force, currently restoring the glorious heritage of Old Havana.
