“Betty's hope”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Amazing place to visit, you really felt what had gone on here. It would be better if the Antiguan government shelled out some money to keep it a little better.

“A windmill only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Historical sites are very run down on the island they have some heritage but need to spend some $ to fix them. A lot of ruins poorly signed and 2 restored windmills. Not a destination in itself, but if passing...

“interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

This attraction only takes a couple of minutes to see as well. We combined this with our trip to Stingray City and Devil's Bridge as it is in the same area

“A good start?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

The site has huge potential but the government has not yet made the islands history a focal point for tourism. Volunteer efforts are preserving and displaying a part of the site.
