Morro Castle - In Spanish: ( Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro) is a picturesque fortress guarding the entrance to Havana bay in Havana, Cuba. Juan Bautista Antonelli, an Italian engineer, was commissioned to design the structure. When it was built in 1589, Cuba was under the control of Spain. The castle, named after the biblical Magi, was later captured by the British in 1762.
Morro Castle in Havana shares the name with other structures in Santiago de Cuba and Fort San Felipe del Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Perched on the promontory on the opposite side of the harbor from Old Havana it can be viewed from miles around as it dominates the port entrance.
I love the shape of this photo. There was a guard standing at the entrance of the tunnel, if you can call it that, He just asked me outright if he could have my sunglasses, I said, 'No', without malice, took my shot and walked away.
