There may be a factual error in either this article or the article on La Cabaña Fortress in Havana, Cuba
This article states that Castillo de San Cristóbal is the largest fortification built by the Spanish in the New World.
The La Cabaña article states that La Cabaña was the second largest colonial military installation in the New World by the time it was completed in 1774 (after St. Felipe de Barajas fortification at Cartagena, Colombia), at great expense to Spain.
Perhaps the distinction is "fortification" vs. "colonial military installation," but it would be interesting to know the size of La Cabaña. Castillo de San Cristobal per the Park Service is 27 acres. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:00, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
