We continue our journey to San Juan de Ulua, one of the oldest fortresses in America, which is also linked to some of the greatest events in the history of Mexico during the Colony, Independence, Reformation, and Revolution periods. It also has played various roles throughout its 400 years of existence. First, it was used as a grain warehouse, and later it was used as a fortress, a prison, and as a presidential residence. This site is full of history!
