The road up to the fort is narrow and steep, so I would definitely use local transportation. The fort is well maintained and worth the price of admission. Its like stepping back in time. Panoramic views that will truly take your breath away. The climb to the uppermost part of the fort maybe a little much if you are out... More

It has one of the best views of the Caribbean Sea, and on a good day, you can clearly see Saba, St Eustatius and even St Barthélemy! It also offer a magnificent panorama of Mt Liamuiga, and perhaps this is the highest point in St Kitts where you can drive up to. However if you aren't physically fit, be warned,... More

$10 US per person. Worth the money. Construction is truly remarkable, especially to consider is was made by hand in the 17th and 18th centuries at the top of a mountain. History is fascinating. Views are spectacular.

This fortress is truly a must see. It is restored to most of its original condition and the size, and the views are unbelievable. It is hard to imagine the effort that was needed to build such a fortress.

Came here while in port during our cruise, and I was so thrilled that I did. This is one part of the island that sits at a much higher altitude, so you get a stunning view of the island, and can make good use of the panoramic feature of your camera/ phone. Besides the view, the fort is well preserved,... More

Everything, about the fort that was in view, gave a real flavour of the history. But they should continue to refine the experience.

Beautifully kept, the view is awesome and so is the history of the Fort. Our tour guide Leo was quite knowledgeable and filled us with lots of information

A well-preserved fort and interesting historical information about the island's past occupations by French and English, as well as the massacre of most of the natives. It is a tricky drive for a visitor--the road is quite steep and single lane in many places, so we recommend using a local taxi. Terrific views across the island and to nearby islands,... More

Beautiful scenery and interesting history. The visitors orientation is interesting, much more interesting than the museum spaces in the upper fortress itself. The snack shop is okay for burgers and a few local dishes. But the panoramic views of the island from the fort are worth everything you paid and gave up to get to the fortress. Pictures don't do...
