El Morro literally means “the mound.”
It is an icon of Monte Cristi, visible everywhere in town and for quite a distance.
This is quite possibly a contender for my best photo of El Morro, taken with my cell phone while out for an early morning walk. (Straight out of the camera, no editing, because, let’s be real, I don’t know how to do that. 🙂
If you look closely at the foreground you will see two men working to harvest salt from the salt flats.
