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.

This is one of the more popular locations in Trinidad where you can visit an actual colonial facility that is in great condition. The view is amazing and the location is relatively safe during day time. The road to Fort George is quite steep so make sure your tires and brakes are good.

Drive from bottom of hill to top was narrow and winding and little 'shady' but on reaching the top the surrounding view was spectacular giving a commanding view of port of Port of Spain and the sea beyond. Lots of well preserved cannons. Surrounding landscape was beautiful. Benches provided for a sit down with a lovely breath taking view. Best... More

From the moment i stepped out of the tour van i couldn't believe what i was seeing. We were at the top of a mountain and overlooking the whole city area and even other small islands. It was an experience i will never forget.

We enjoyed the prison cells, the other buildings (gun buliding and bell tank), the cannons as well as the history of the Fort. The view from atop the hill was spectacular and best of all it was free to visit.
