La Fortaleza is the Governor's mansion. It is located in the western part of the city at the end of the street, facing the bay. The mansion was built as a fortress in 1540 and has been re-restored several times. It was also the home to several governors since the Spanish and American colonialist rule. The autonomous government has delivered the modern era governors to the island. There are free tours in English and Spanish. Be properly attired for a visit.
