Breathtaking view of Port-of-Spain from atop this perch. Drive to the top is a little precarious but worth the risk for the peace and tranquility.

The drive up is interesting and when we got there late afternoon there were couples there for a peaceful time. The views are spectacular as the sun goes down. Some history about the fort and Trinidad and well kept

Nothing much there other than a small house, cannons and a jail (which were never used) however the view from there is good. Can even see Venezuela on a clear day.

All of the reviews are bang on. It's a great location, with a bit of an adventurous drive to get up there! It's a great spot for a picnic. There's enough parking and the grounds are well maintained with a few vintage cannons too! Also, the bathrooms have been newly renovated and are probably the best public restrooms you'll find...

An 8 minute drive to the top of the fort and u'll be blown away by the view! Fort George is a historical site built in the 1700's or 1800's when the french, english & spanish were fighting for these islands. It's in interesting site ! Go see!

I was taken by a local to Fort George after a day at Maracas and Chaguaramas. The views here are simply breath-taking. The site itself is a very neat historical site that is well-maintained. I could sit on the benches here for hours. This is a great place for the time near sunset, definitely do not miss if you are... More

To get an overall sense of the history of the island, visit Fort George, walk the grounds, examine the artifacts. Highest view gives you great photo ops.
