Historic Saint Lucia

This former British gun battery was built to defend the island from pirates and competing European colonial powers. Now it ironically overlooks a fun, festive beach and is within steps of the shining nightlife and upscale golf courses typical of modern island life.

Guests can access the fort via guided tours and experience a window into the area's history. Aside from safety concerns, a guide is also required to explain the many rooms and underground passages in the structure, some of them built secretly, as part of a local military defense force. Other nearby attractions for aficionados of local history include the Government House and Le Pavillon Royal Museum.

Utrip Tips

*This site can not be explored on your own (you can view it from a distance but you cannot go inside) so you'll need to call in advance to set up a time for a guide to show you around. There will be a small fee for your guide, but it's certainly worth it!
