From the highest point of the Fortress the flags of Spain, France, England, Haiti and the United States once flew.
The principal objective of this construction was to protect the city from pirates attacks as well as English, French and Portuguese invaders.
It was opened on October 6, 1992, commemorating the centenary V.
That same day the remains were moved from Columbus to the Cathedral Mausoleum erected at the crossing of the monument.
In 1548 the widow of Diego Columbus, Maria de Toledo prepared her will here.
It is unknown to this day why the Spanish authorities abandoned this fortress so close to the river and in such a strategic place.
