Fortresses of Habana del Este

Interesting
Beyond Habana Vieja, by the Havana tunnel exit, two haughty forts stand guard over the bay. On the left is the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro (late 16C), a fine example of military architecture flanked by a more recent lighthouse, fom where there is a memorable view. On the right, the Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña (18C) stretches along the bay; it has two museums, (Che Guevara and Cuban military history). Every evening at 9pm a cannon shot echoes around the ramparts.
