This is a site you should visit when in Trinidad. The view is spectacular and the ground are kept really nice. There is a fee to visit the museum.If on a cruise ship take a taxi or tour as walking up that long hill in the heat is really a challenge.

It's a tricky drive going up to Fort George. The road is very narrow and not in good condition. The reward for making the effort is the view. You can see all of Port of Spain. The grounds are well kept so if you take food you can have lunch up there. Perhaps it's because I'm not a history enthusiast... More

This is a picturesque historical site that is set atop a winding road. It's definitely worth the trip and is pretty quick to get through.

I like going here. It is scenic, nature oriented and quiet. You could take nice pics here. You could spend the day there with friends and family.

Amazing view! It's a bit of a drive up a long and winding mountain road (if you hate heights, this drive isn't for you) but when you get to the top you have the best views of Trinidad.

This in my opinion is one of the best lookout points that allows you to observe the nation's capital. You can actually see the land developments/additions throughout the years. Also helps you envision the fort's use in the colonial days.
