History preserved.

Good place to go to look out over Port of Spain. There is a small visitor centre and a whole battery of canon.

This is a place to get a fantastic view of Port of Spain and the Gulf of paria. Take care to visit during day light hours and with more than one person as the road tends to be lonely. With that said pack a picnic and enjoy the view and ambience.

You really do get some of the best views of Port of Spain - well worth the drive up. Take a picnic and relax overlooking the city, mountains with the Caroni Swamp and Venezuela in the background.

I loved the view from this Fort. The museum was interesting with various artifacts, and the history of the English in Trinidad.

It is hard to get there walking but it offers almost a 360º view of the city at no cost at all. It is a simple construction but tells a lot abouthte history of the city.

Fort George sits at one of the highest peaks in Port of Spain, and affords absolutely gorgeous views of the city from its perch. Best thing besides that in my book is that it costs nothing to experience if you have transportation up the steep winding road. That climb gave me a few palpitations, but the reward is oh so...

The fort is high on a mountain overlooking Port of Spain, there's not much to see in the fort itself but is well maintained and really you would go to the views which are quite stunning also the ride up to the fort is good,a narrow winding road which from the base will take about 30 minutes to get there

The view from this lookout is breath-taking ! You can see the whole of Chaguramas.If you are in Port-Of-Spain,coming here is a necessity! The road up to the Fort Gerorge is very NARROW and VERY STEEP!

Fabulous panoramic view across Port of Spain and to the south. The drive up can be a bit scary at first, but very worth the effort. The road itself is in decent shape it's just very narrow in spots so don't be afraid to use your horn! Benches to sit down and relax are appreciated! Nice way to spend an... More

Fort George is super fun to check out. If you you are new to Caribbean driving then go for it but otherwise maybe a cab. Go in the morning the light is better.
