The roads on St. Lucia are hilly and winding. It was quite a ride to get up to Morne Fortune. Some may want to take their sea sick pills! The historic area contains the old fort which is now being used as government and educational buildings. You can also see some ruins, walk to the Inniskilling Monument, and look at... More

Not too far from Castries, up a winding road that will test your will in one of the great views on the island. Definitely recommend you have a local drive you while you relax and look at the scenery. Much of the drive is through wooded area but occasionally a great view pops out and you want to be ready.... More

After a meandering drive up through the Morne area you are treated to some of the best views over Castries. It is a very historic area and there are forts buildings and interesting sights galore. It is really worth the trip. The old colonial house of St. Mark's is an interesting place to stop off for food and for a... More

We liked the drive to Morne Fortune Historic area. Passed local schools, old fort buildings and lovely vegetation along the way. At the park there are guides who for a small tip will explain even more about the area. Definitely worth a visit. You will see William Arthur Lewis a noble laureate grave site and some Inniskilling Monument monuments as... More

Great views over castries town and port, but to get to the view you have to get through the market stalls, this is a hassle zone. But when you get through the view is worth it

breath taking view of the Island and Castrie. Old military buildings and a feel for the inland roads.

On our way back to the harbour, we stopped at this location to take a couple of pictures - felt it was one of the best spots for pictures of Castries.
