“Sadly neglected but worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

I love history and sites like this I always check out. The fort that overlooks Marigot is in ruins but offers spectacular views and a bit of history (plaquards). Not too bad a climb and a great photo spot. They could do so much more with this historical monument, but alas, it has been allowed to deteriorate and is virtually abandoned.

“violent roberry at the Fort, during the day time”

It is a great vue, but there are also young men waiting for an oportunity to attack you and steal everything you have, and threatening you if you try to resist.

“Lovely remnants of the fort and outstanding views of waterfront Marigot”

Off our cruise ship and into a local bus to venture to Marigot. Walked to the Fort and enjoyed the ruins and the spectacular views of the Marigot waterfront from above.

This is the seond time we hiked up to the Fort from Marigot. The views are excellent looking up and down the coast. Once up there, there is not a lot to do except enjoy the scenery!
