Fort Beekenburg

Fort Beekenburg was built in 1703 on Curaçao at Caracas Bay to defend Spanish Water.

Caracas Bay with Spanish Water behind it were one of the few suitable places to land from the sea. Therefore, it was decided to build a fort to make it impossible for enemies to reach Willemstad.

Quarantine Building

In 1874, the area of Caracas Bay was designated a quarantine station for ships carrying infectious disease. A hospital was set up in the garrison buildings near the fort for sick sailors.

Further south, at the corner of the bay, the observation facility for sailors was built in 1883; the Quarantine Building. The sailors had to stay here until it was determined that they were not infected.
