The majestic military building from the colonial era, La Loma Fort, is one of the most important monuments in the province of Las Tunas. It dates from the late nineteenth century and is located on the top of a hill and at the very entrance of the city, on the shore of the bay. It was built with limestone, lime and clay, resembling more the constructions of the Sahara desert than those conceived by the Spanish in those times.
In 1981 it was declared a National Monument due to its historical and architectural relevance, as an exponent of the military constructions of the Spanish Metropolis in the Caribbean at the end of the 19th century.
Location: Libertad Avenue. Puerto Padre, Cuba.
