Search Vieques Puerto Rico

The Forte Conde de Mirasol Museum is the major man-made attraction on Vieques Island. In the 1840s, Count Mirasol convinced the Spanish government to build a defensive fortress off the coast of mainland Puerto Rico. Today, the restored fort houses a museum of art and history celebrating the story of Vieques.

Indian relics, displays of Spanish conquest, old flags of the Danes, British and French are here. A collection of maps shows how the world's cartographers predicted Vieques. The museum and fort are open Wednesday through Sunday from 10am to 4pm. Admission costs are $1 for adults and 50 cents for children.
