For a free visit this was amazing! Wear sneakers or comfy shoes! We went there on the spur of the moment and I had on fashion sandals but it was well worth it! My feet will heal. The view of Anguilla is pretty but what's more gorgeous are the homes nestled in the hills of Marigot! I'm really considering buying property here. I love this island!!!

Tough walk up when it's humid! But the reward of aspectacular view was worth it. My son loved it too, mostly the cannons that were still there. Also any story of history, soldiers and pirates keeps his attention.

The views from the fort acros the surrounding areas was amazing but the grounds were full of litter. It is a shame that it hasn't been better taken care of. The little signposts giving information were interesting. So much potential here.

This is worth the stop if you happen to be driving by but mostly just for the over looking views of Marigot Bay and not necessarily the fort. The French seem to be proud the won a battle there but really the ruins barely resemble an old fort. Do not expect a fort like on St. Kitts, Puerto Rico, or even St. Croix.

While it looks like quite a walk up to Fort Louis, it's really not that bad. A bit steep, but it is so worth the trip. The views up on this 17th century fort and the refreshing breezes makes this a must visit for me while visiting Marigot. There are plaques explaining its history as well, so it will be educational.
