Resource Descriptions

Summary of Significance
Authenticity has been compromised with the renovation that took place in the early 2000s - the old coral stone dock has been plastered with cement rendering the original structure hardly visible anymore. This is, however, important as it is strongly linked with the other historic structures around such as the almacen and the two garitas.
