Historic Military Fort

Fort Fincastle was originally built in 1793 on Society Hill, overlooking the city of Nassau. The fort's architecture was designed to make the building look somewhat like a ship on the horizon to deter potential invaders. There are several cannons and a howitzer mounted on the walls overlooking the harbor for those who enjoy artifacts from military history.

The fort is accessible by car, but the best way to access the landmark building is to walk up the Queen's Staircase. The historic landmark offers spectacular scenic views over the city and the cruise port dock, so it's great for photo opportunities.
