For over three and a half centuries, the Spanish controlled Castillo San Felipe del Morro, successfully defending the city of San Juan from various foreign invaders, until the citadel became American property as a consequence of the Spanish—American War. In 1961, the U.S Army officially turned over the property to the National Park Service.
This stunning wooden ornament presents a close up detail of Castillo San Felipe Del Morro's lookout stations, where, over 300 years ago, a Spanish soldier would have sighted British or Dutch invaders in the distance.
Laser-engraved, this ornament's details are remarkable. The different levels of engraving artistically reproduce the look of age that the actual lookout station exhibits. Made of Pacific Northwest alder wood, this ornament makes a great keepsake from your visit or a thoughtful gift for the history lover in your life.
