San Felipe Fort

San Felipe Fort

The Fuerte San Felipe (San Felipe Fort) is  located on a small peninsula on the Bahia de Puerto Plata, the bay Columbus once had such high hopes for. The Fort is, in fact, the only vestige of Puerto Plata’s colonial past. For a little admission fee, you’ll be able to look in on a small historical museum, and the tiny cell in which the hero of the Independence movement, Juan Pablo Duarte, was briefly confined. You’ll find a number of guides hanging around the entrance to the fort, who for a small fee, will give you a tour. Admission is RD$100 – $2.50US and includes a headset and voice tour.
