Faro de San Juan, San Juan, Puerto Rico

The San Juan Lighthouse (Faro de San Juan) is located within the walls of the El Morro fortress which sits on a high point overlooking the East Side of the entrance to the harbour at San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is a short walk from the Old San Juan area. There was a light station first established at this site in 1846, making it the olders in Puerto Rico. The current light is from 1908. The light is well maintained and tours are available if you arrive at the fort at the right time and sign up (unfortunately I missed it as the tour was full when I was at the fort). My photos were taken in November 2010 and the top photo depicts the location of the light in relation to the fortress overall.
