Discovery : Fort Soledad

Discovery (Post#28) : Fort Soledad

At the time of Spanish colonization, it is commonly learned that a fort was built for a reason to fortify the place. Like Fort Agueda, Fort Soledad (Fort Nuestra Senora de la Soledad), was built with a reason to fortify the Umatac Bay. Since the bay or Umatac itself became the station of ships that cross Pacific Ocean during Galleon trading period, which became a main reason to create a fort. It is also created to protect the once known rich Umatac Village. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.
