Nice drive up into the mountains and overlook castries. it is beautiful especilaly in the night bedcause you get a good view of the city lit up at night.

Its 900ft above sea level. you will great a great view of the city, pigeon point, the neighboring island of Martinique come a clear day and various hotels. the college is the remains og building the french and the british built during the war.
We stopped for a picture view of our ship in the dock and Catries. The day was so clear, you could see Martinique. A great stop for pictures.
