San Lorenzo Fort, Panama City

Panama City
view web site ›'s insider take:

This ancient fort on the Caribbean coast, originally built by Spaniards in the late 16th century, is set on an isolated, windswept promontory near the entrance to the Panama Canal. Attacks by pirates (among them Sir Francis Drake and Henry Morgan) as well as British admirals meant that the fort had to be repeatedly rebuilt; what you'll see today are the incredible remains of the last refurbishment, in 1751—now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
