  • Very historic fort, designed by British and constructed by slaves. Large area to visit with movie and gift shop. If you make it to the top, make sure you ring the bell in the arch, it is tradition. Beautiful views of the surrounding area and refurbishing us underway by the Government.
  • Pretty excellent historical site. You learn a great number on the history of St. Kitts. Beautiful grounds. It is an experience worth having.
