Fort of San Miguel

Fuerte de San Miguel

The Fort of San Miguel  was built in the 18th century, driven by the fear of being attacked by pirates. Today it is considered a representative monument of the city’s military architecture. Up until the 20th century, it was used as the headquarters of the federal army; nowadays it is home to the Museo de la Cultura Maya (Museum of the Mayan Culture), a museum that exhibits archeological pieces from the Mayan culture, one of them being the fabulous Jade Mask of Calakmul.
