Nowadays the fort’s squat, rectangular basalt form is overshadowed by the magnificent, soaring white wave of an auditorium, designed by the internationally renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and possessing a Sydney Opera House presence, as well as superb acoustics. Guided tours will take you behind the scenes of this remarkable building. Tours are in Spanish only and you should reserve in advance. Just randomly turning up in the hope of looking around is something of a waste of time as there’s unlikely to be anyone around and the city authorities seem to have almost criminally ignored the tourism potential of the building.
