Built in the late 18th century, this neatly restored fort (with drawbridge and moat) sits atop Cerro de Bellavista. Inside, a museum illustrates the port’s maritime history through models, weaponry and other paraphernalia, including a beautiful ebony rudder carved in the shape of a hound.

To get here, catch a ‘Bellavista Josefa’ or ‘Morelos’ bus from the market; some might also be marked 'San Jose del Alto'. You might have to walk a bit from where the bus drops you. Taxis cost around M$50.
