“Breathtaking View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

After a good climb, the historic fort,still with cannons,offers an amazing view of Marigot harbor and much of the island. On a clear day you can see neighboring islands. Always fun to talk with other tourists. Must take pictures.

“Awesome views!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

If you want great views and photos-make the climb to the fort. I love forts so visiting this place was a must. Old cannons and a few info signs are up there. The walls have seen better days. But the history of the French fort and the views make for a great time. The climb isn't really hard. The best part=visiting the fort is FREE!!

“Spectacular site & views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

It's a historic fort with a commanding view of Marigot and distant views of Anguilla. Very worthwhile visit after a moderate set of climbing steps. There were informative historic info plaques. It's free and a must-see.

“So cool!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

The walk is not very far, but a little steep. Make sure you wear sneakers. The views make it so worth while!!! Nothing else like it. Plus awesome history. Beautiful!
