About this place
Fort San Diego was built in order to protect the port and the ships with the cargo which were coming here. It was built between 1615 and 1617 but due to the earthquake that happened in 1776 the fort was rebuilt several years later. Today, it is the most important historical site in Acapulco. It is also home the historical museum of the city – Museo Histórico de Acapulco. The museum has 15 exhibition halls where it shows items that describe the city´s history. It exhibits archeological and historical objects and the museum often loans from other museum so that visitors can see other objects which are do not belong to the museum permanently. The objects here represent not only the colonial heritage but a combination of different cultural heritage; Mezcala, Mayan, and Olmec. Here one can also see some interesting masks and figurines. The Museum and the fort are well equipped. There is a parking space, an auditorium, department for educational services, a garden, guided tours service, and of course, a magnificent view over Acapulco´s port and Bay of Santa Lucía.
