Winner of GIVE ME AN A challenge in SHUTTERBUGS:
Arches deep into Fuerte San Cristobal in San Juan, Puerto Rico
The fort was constructed to defend Old San Juan against land attacks from the east via Puerta de Tierra. The imaginative design came from the famous Irish mercenary Alejandro O’Reilly and his compatriot Thomas O’Daly (hired by Spain). Construction began in 1634 in response to an attack by the Dutch a decade previously, though the main period of enlargement occurred between 1765 and 1783.
