Founded in 1519, Havana is the nation’s capital. Its Historic Center and the fortification system, including the Morro-Cabaña fortress, were listed in 1982 as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of "Old Havana and its Fortifications".
Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña, known as La Cabaña (Fort of Saint Charles), is an 18th-century fortress complex, the third biggest in the Americas, located on the elevated eastern side of the harbor entrance in Havana, Cuba. The fort rises above the 200-foot (60 m) hilltop, along with Morro Castle (fortress).
