Notes:

Havana, Cuba - The lighthouse at El Morro is seen from the rooftop at La Cabaņa (Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaņa). Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro (or El Morro) was built in 1589 in response to raids on Havana Bay, el Morro protected the mouth of the harbour with a chain being strung out across the to the fort at La Punta. Juan Bautista Antonelli, an Italian engineer, was commissioned to design the structure. It first saw action in 1762 when the English led by Lord Albemarle landed in Cojimar and attacked the fort from its rear. In the siege, a watchtower that once occupied the fortress was blown up (the lighthouse was not added until 1845). It fell because the English were able to command the nearby high ground so when the island was handed back to the Spanish, the fort at La Cabaņa (full name: Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaņa) was built to prevent this from happening again.
