    Fort San FelipeFort San Felipe Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
    Fortaleza San Felipe is a marvelous historic Spanish fortress that is situated in the northern region of the Dominican Republic, in the Puerto Plata province, and known locally as the El Morro de San Felipe and was built to protect the city of Puerto Plata from pirates and other marauders that might have attacked the harbor. The fort rests on the hill at the Puntilla Del Malecon, that looks out over the ocean, with a very strategic location to protect the entrance to the city's harbor and seaport. The construction had been ordered by King Felipe II of Spain in 1564, and finished in 1577 by Don Reggifo de Angulo, the fort's mayor. The fort has become a wonderful museum that depicts the significant role that it has played in the history of the city and the nation, with military relics from the 18th and 19th centuries. During its history, it has been used as a prison, when Pedro Santana would jail one of the founding fathers, Juan Pablo Duarte. It would become a museum in 1965, enjoying a major restoration in 1972, and in 1983, would be officially opened to the public. Now, it is the last surviving remains of the 16th century in the city, since everything else that had been built or made was destroyed by fire or battles in the War of Restoration.

    Museum of Taino ArtMuseum of Taino Art Puerto Pluta, Dominican Republic
    The museum of Taino art in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic was created to collect, preserve and show the objects and works of art that date to the pre-Columbian period, and to increase the level of knowledge and understanding of the cultures and history of the island in regards to its historical foundations by the Taino Amerindians that lived here before the Europeans arrived. These Tainos were the island's first inhabitants, and considered to be quite beautiful in appearance, living in harmony with their natural surroundings and isolated from the rest of the world. The museum is well known because of the Taino tomb that was excavated on the island and now is one of the best exhibits located here. It would be in 1492, when Columbus sailed the ocean blue and discovered this little paradise, filled with beautiful friendly people that would share their world and knowledge with the newly arrived Europeans, only to be shown the worst side of the adventurers.
