Puerto Rico - old fort and lighthouse

Fortín Cande de Mirasol was the last fort the Spanish built in the Americas. It was begun in the 1840s and never completed. Now it is an art and history museum on a hill above Isabel Segunda (Isabella II) on isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico. While we were there, a music teacher was giving guitar lessons. 

Isabella II was the only female monarch of Spain and deposed during the 1868 Spanish revolution. There is a wonderful view of the Atlantic and El Faro de Punta Mulas (Point Mulas Lighthouse).
