The Castillo de San Felipe, housing a 50 Spaniards garrison, it is a fortress built in 1595, to protect the warehouses down river where Spaniards stored precious metals and “Cochinilla”.

Honi soit qui mal y pense reads one of the canons captured by the garrison of a buccaneers ship.
I’ll have more abot the castle. Right now i’m en route; to some caves full of Mayan artifacts.
