Piracy Museum: (CUBA) The central theme of the Piracy Museum, lodged in the Morro Castle of Santiago de Cuba, is to record the atrocities, looting, and violence committed by the pirates. This fortress, erected on a cliff at the entrance of the bay in the 17th century, was built precisely to defend the city from the filibusters (an adventurer who engages in a private military action in a foreign country). The Museum shows, among other things, that, since 1538, Santiago de Cuba was the victim of successive piratical attacks for twenty-four consecutive years.
