Abstract

The timeline of transformation of Fort San Domingo shows that between the 1630s and 1860s it was used as a military defense; from the 1860s–1970s as a foreign consulate and then from the 1980s–2010s as a historical site. We can see different and contradictory explanations of the cultural imagination of remembrance, exoticism and the symbolism of anti-imperialism from the historical context of this military building.
