PZO102 Guayana Castle
Reports of the rich missions of the Caroni and the myth of the golden city of Manoa or El Dorado induced many attacks of the Guayana settlements from English, Dutch and French pirates and privateers like Sir Walter Raleigh in 1618, Adrian Janson in 1629, and many others. To withstand attacks generally coming by the Orinoco River, two forts were built in the XVII and XVIII centuries, at approximately 30 km before the current Ciudad Guayana. Visit the San Diego Castle or Campo Elias and the San Francisco de Asís Castle or Villapol, classical Spanish colonial constructions that were still used as late as 1943 to control traffic up and down the river.
