Puerto Rico: El Morro on the defense of the island —

Francis Drake.

However, to take El Morro — the Spanish fortress on the island of Puerto Rico, Drake could not, and went to rob other Caribbean colonies. And besides the famous pirate, the fort withstood more than one attack from the Dutch fleet, a bunch of restless British, and later — the American Atlantic squadron at the end of 19th century. And why, one wonders, did they all climb here?

Well, of course, because of the treasures of the Spanish crown, plus the island was convenient to use on the waterway to Europe as a «base» for a warehouse of loot in the newly discovered Latin American countries.

In his second voyage to the shores of the West Indies, Christopher Columbus was the first European to set foot on the land of Puerto Rico, a small rectangular island in the very northeast of the Caribbean Sea. The local Indians called their island Boriken, but Columbus gave it the name San Juan Batista («Saint John the Baptist»). Soon, the city of Puerto Rico appears on the island (that is, «rich harbor»). Subsequently, cartographers mixed up the names, and the name San Juan was assigned to the city, and Puerto Rico was assigned to the island.

It was to protect San Juan that the powerful, 6-level fort of El Morro was erected, the construction of which began in 1539. Over the next 300+ years, Spain more and more hangs El Morro with different «chips»: either the thickness of the walls is increased from two meters to five and a half, or in general, it was decided to enclose the entire San Juan with a huge wall, the construction of which took 48 years.
All of this — huge city walls, along the way built fort San Cristobal to repel ground attacks, and, finally, armored from all sides El Morro defended San Juan until the very end of 19th century.

But in 1898, the Spanish-American War broke out, ending Spain’s dominance in Caribbean waters.
In January, during the unrest in Havana, Washington decides to send the battleship «Maine» there in order to show concern to the United States and protect American citizens (trees, nothing has changed in a hundred plus years). After the explosion of the ironclad on February 15, hostility towards Spain in American society began to grow. Adding fuel to the fire was the fact that, a week before the bombing, the New York Journal published a stolen letter by the Spanish minister in Washington, in which he belittled the current President McKinley and expressed confidence that Spain was ready to fight if the war will happen.

Relying on militant sentiments, the McKinley government, under the pretext of supporting the national uprising in Cuba (which had been going on since 1895 for the independence of Cuba), declared war on Spain. During the hostilities, the United States captured Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines, which belonged to Spain since the 16th century. According to the Peace of Paris, which ended the war, Spain renounced the rights to all these colonies, which were declared «free states», but found themselves, however, under one form or another of US control.

So, the handsome El Morro has become the American «Fort Brook», and the green lawn in front of it has been planted with palm trees and turned into a golf course.

Today, the flags of Puerto Rico, the United States and the Burgundian Cross, which used to be used by the Spaniards, flutter over the fort.

The struggle for the status of Puerto Rico does not stop. A certain part of the islanders is striving to turn the country into a US state. Their interests are represented by the Republican Party under a flag of blue, white and red horizontal stripes.
The independence camp is small and fragmented. Among them is the Communist Party, revived in 2010 (together with the political school named after Vladimir Lenin), whose flag repeats the design of the national flag, but, paradoxically, the red color has been eliminated from it. It is the only Communist Party flag in the world that does not have red on it. The majority of Puerto Ricans, participating in periodic referendums, support the idea of ​​maintaining the current status of the country.

Entrance to El Morro is $3 (children under 15 free). In the very center is the main square of the fortress, where parades and celebrations take place. A well was also dug here, which provided rain drinking water to all the defenders of the fort. The premises around were used as barracks, powder magazines, prison cells and firing points.

Going down the stairs to the very bottom, you can get to the St. Barbara Battery, the most powerful cannon battery of the entire fort. Most of the cannons here are located almost at sea level in order to be able to fire on the bottoms of ships that have come too close to the fortress. True, the battery participated in hostilities only twice. The rest of the time it was teachings, teachings, teachings.

And perhaps the most romantic element of the fortress — garitas . Guard houses «garitas» have become a national symbol. Their images can be found in any tourist catalogue, on postcards, on license plates and various souvenirs. And modern young Puerto Ricans like to kiss there 🙂

And speaking of toilets. No, but what? Enough history for us, it’s time for the essentials.
