San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com The 450 yards of open grounds between El Morro and the edge of the city is an important part of the original design of the fort. This esplanade was historically maintained without trees or plants or any object that could shelter the approach of enemy soldiers. Attackers here would be in the line of fire from the cannon of El Morro - LukeTravels.com

MAIN PLAZA - LEVEL V - This upper courtyard was an important focal point for the troops that manned El Morro and in this square you can imagine daily drill inspections, formations, and the reading of the Orders of the Day. The vaulted rooms around the Plaza served as officers' quarters, storerooms for food, magazines, and cannon firing positions. Today you will find them full of museum displays, the restrooms, an audiovisual theater, and the museum bookstore. The well in the center provided access to underground cisterns which could hold 315,000 gallons of rain water collected from the surfaces of El Morro, enough for a year's supply if the garrison were under siege. - LukeTravels.com San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com

San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com San Juan Puerto Rico - LukeTravels.com The enlisted men had their quarters in the casemated rooms on this lower level, and in the spaces under the Great Ramp are their kitchens, latrines, and a blacksmith's forge for cannon repairs. In battle, cannon would be emplaced to fire out to sea from these casemates. - LukeTravels.com
