Reviewed March 22, 2013

after a little reading up on it after our visit, i found out that most of what the guide said was completely inaccurate.

“Fun place to visit”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a good stop while in Nassau. There is alot of history here and it is worth a visit. Just like the queens staircase, after you stop 1 time and get some interesting pictures, thats enough. We stopped by on an island tour, so not sure if there was a fee to get in or not, however if there is, a few dollars is all I would pay to get in. The photo's from up top are amazing!!!!

Reviewed March 19, 2013

As with the Queens Staircase, it is difficult to find. It has the advantage of being next to the water tower,so not theposition of the water tower and maintainyour azmuth.
$1 fee to go in, The sights are beautiful. A bitof the history is wonderful Really enjoyed.

“Interesting part of Nassau history”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The walls on the forth are about 8 feet thick! It is a low structure on an island high point and an interesting part of the local history. There is a small market right across the winding street and the Queen's staircase is just around the corner.
