San Lorenzo Fort
The San Lorenzo Fort is set along Panama’s central Caribbean coast, just west of Colón and the Gatún Locks. The fort lies within one of Panama’s most recent protected areas. The San Lorenzo Protected Area spreads across 30,000 acres (12,000 ha) and includes the San Lorenzo Fort and the former U.S. military base of Fort Sherman. It also includes countless mangroves, wetlands, and forests.
