Known as the home of the San Fernando Fort, built by the Spanish in the late 1700’s. Construction of "Castillo de San Fernando" began in 1759, in order to protect against the many attempts of foreign invasion and pervasive attacks by pirates. The adjacent museum, built in the past decade, has been a work in progress. It features a very rich history, and artistic display of the way Omoa was in the late 1700’s. The fortress was also used as a prison for many years. When it became a tourist attraction, a long term restoration and protection plan was placed into action.
