Omoa - fort
Fortaleza de San Fernando de Omoa on the shore of the Gulf of Honduras is another important monument of Honduras. It was constructed in 1759 - 1775 and, as well as a smaller Castillo de San Felipe of Guatemala protected Spanish colonies against pirates. It was later used as a prison.More pictures can be found on the following pages. I also recommend Fortaleza San Fernando de Omoa (Spanish, with many pictures) and Let's Go Honduras.
