It’s a steep walk up to the fort. Upon arrival there was a place to pay 2 US Dollars. You don’t get a ticket and it seems the locals are picketing the takings. There is nothing up there much & what there is is unkept...More

Not an awful lot to see but interesting history. Worth a visit to see the all round view. It was constructed by the French in the 18th Century.

Fort George is an easy uphill walk from downtown St George. Bring water and a snack after the fort head to the cathedral . You will have your daily exercise .

Quick ramble through the ruins of this old fort provided a great view of the city but few explanations are available. Wear sturdy shoes.

Visiting Fort George involves a lot of climbing--60 steps and then more climbing on ramps. There is a small admission charge. The best reason for visiting is to take photos of the harbour, Port Louis, and Grand Anse beach in the distance. Parts of the...More

I wouldn't suggest going if you don't have a guide. We went without one, and there is no one there to give you a tour if that's what you wanted. We saw a run down fort with an open courtyard that now has basketball nets,...More
