The constant attacks of pirates scouring the Gulf of Mexico and the Belize coast oblige to strengthen the entry of the Izabal Lake. In 1595, they start the construction of a tower, destroyed by the pirates. In 1651, the fort is rebuilt by Lara, a magistrate, who baptizes it Castle of San Felipe de Lara.
