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

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

If you want a great history lesson and spectacular views at the same time, this is your place. The fortress has been maintained incredibly well. We are always in awe to try and imagine what life was like a few hundred years ago. This fortress does a great job in trying to depict the living conditions. Again, a must see... More

Had a workers little boy show us around! Beautiful views and great to learn the local history. Roads are very narrow coming up so watch out for others!

A great trip. A lot of history and military engineering here. Spectacular views of the coast and neighboring islands. Pay the $5 for the recorded tour to enhance your visit. Nothing much in the gift store.

If you would like to understand a part of this island's history you need to visit here and consider how this fortress was created.

Considering there is not a lot of cultural activities to do on the island of St Kitts, this is just about average. Costs $10 per person for entry. Very narrow openings to drive a car through and a very steep drive up. Well restored Fortress but still work in progress. Great views of the island from the top.
