The capital of Saint Helena, a remote island located 1200 miles off the West coast of Africa, is Jamestown. The town was founded in 1659 by the British East India Company, and the island is still a United Kingdom Overseas Territory. The island is so isolated that it was chosen to be a place of exile for Britain's political prisoners, including Napoleon. Longwood House, where he lived until his death, still stands. The perilous 699 step Jacob's Ladder leads up to a stunning view of the island.
