Santiago de Cuba - #6 - El Morro and the Inlet

The Inlet at Santiago de Cuba, and the Fort (El Morro) that guards it are always picturesque.  The first views below are westward along the coast, from the top of El Morro.  The mountain range is the Sierra Maestra, and this is where Castro, Che and the others camped for years before they took over.

Inward, to the west, is a peninsula called Socapa, where people had private cottages.  The island near that is Cayo Granma, named after the boat that Castro, Che and others took to Cuba.  Prior to the Revolution, it was called Cayo Smith.

Looking inward, you can hardly see the city, as it is protected by twists and turns.  It's to the right.
