Did You Know?
Three lighthouses have stood on El Morro's 6th level in its long history. The first one was built in 1846. A second one replaced it in 1872. It took a direct hit during the 1898 bombardment by Sampson's US fleet, but the brick foundation was salvaged in 1909 to erect the lighthouse in use today.
