Fort Oranje, Kralendijk

2.1
If you’re in town and fancy a bit of history, take a look at Fort Oranje, a small Dutch fortification built over 300 years ago. Boasting impressive views of the ocean and close proximity to shops and restaurants, you can wander around within the walls, though most of the actual building is still used by the government. Original British naval cannons stand on the walls, and the tapered lighthouse serves as a striking landmark. By using our Kralendijk online trip planner , you can arrange your visit to Fort Oranje and other attractions in Kralendijk.

    Also, this is a piece of history when you must have seen. The guns on the wall are English. The Dutch guns they have. There is 1 more to rust on the waterfront.

    It is a few meters from the cruise port what is obligatory. It is a small fort that stands out for its intense yellow, some ancient cannons and next to the Government building.

    realize we guarded our goods from here, main and gave orders to retrieve and export slaves, and thus to exploit. May not be neatly, however, at the time, it was and is good that it has been abolished ... but yes that is an indelible history.
