Originally a Spanish fort, Cinco Torres was abandoned at an unknown time. Sometime before the year 1899, Hercule Fontaine made it the capital of his rebel movement.
After rescuing Javier from Aguasdulces, and a group of Guarman workers near La Capilla, the Van der Linde gang rendezvous with Hercule at Cinco Torres. It is then that the Cuban army launches a ground invasion of the fort, while a large warship approaches. The gang and Hercule open fire on the enemy soldiers, and succeed in holding them off before the overwhelming numbers reach the fort. Dutch, Hercule and Arthur then charge out, and cut down the soldiers who have reached the fort. They then realize that the Cuban warship is within firing range of Cinco Torres, and Hercule and Arthur rush up to the cannon on top of the fort. Arthur mans the cannon, and brings down the warship, saving Cinco Torres.
It is likely that Cinco Torres is based on Morro Castle, a fortress guarding the entrance to Havana bay in Havana, Cuba.
The fort shares its name with the company that makes Guarma Rum, who may have previously operated at the fort.
↑Bottle label reads "Cinco Torres, the finest Guarma rum", have a stylized fort on them, and signs can be found in general stores advertising the company as having operated since 1709.
