Though it is highly recommended you visit Castillo San Felipe del Morro and Castillo San Cristobal, because of both merit a detailed explanation. The tour time centres on the city and its parts as they fit each other. The guides touch on how San Juan came to be, why it came to be so heavily fortified, who attacked and when.
