“Worth the Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Little harry drive going up but it's well worth the trip. Once you arrive at the peak you won't be disappointed. Very relaxing peaceful stroll to inspect all the sites. The view of the ocean and Port of Spain is absolutely spectacular. Try and go on a clear day for the best view, but regardless of the weather it's worth the trip. It was overcast the day we went but it was still great. If it's rained beware of the rain flies, there will be thousands, but it's mainly inside the building. If you're able to go people have apparently dumped some dogs up there so bring a bag of dog food to put out for them, mainly by the parking lot. They were all friendly and didn't bother anyone, just hungry. We fed them all the snacks we had but it wasn't nearly enough. Again it's well worth the trip if for no other reason but the view and feeding the poor dogs.

“Well Preserved History Lesson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Beautifully situated high on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic, this fort is a top site on Tobago. The museum has a collection of curiosities as well as some native Amerindian artifacts. It is well worth a brief wander. The well manicured lawns and plants are perfect for an amble to see the remains of the fort (jail, powder storage, barracks). The views are great. Don't miss it!

“You can see for miles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This was my first time back to Trinidad in over 30 years and it was a great place to visit and see POS and Diego Martin. Could truly get a sense of how much the areas had changed and for my husband a perspective of the areas that we had just driven around. Lovely breeze was blowing and many folks enjoying the peace and quiet of it all.

“A view from the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Old historical sight. Great view of Port of Spain, Diego Martin and the ferry to Tobago. On a clear day you can see Venezuela. Crazy drive up but worth the risk.
