2.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Admire the 17th century construction of Fort Amsterdam as you step inside the UNSECO world heritage grounds of Willemstad. Constructed in 1634, the fort features 3 m (10 ft) wide walls and four bastions. Inside, it houses government offices, a cabinet belonging to the governor of Curacao, and the museum of the Protestant community of the city, which is located in the fort church. Head to the fort church and find a cannonball still wedged into its facade, the result of British forces firing shots from a stronghold, with one of them eventually reaching the church. Our Curacao itinerary planner makes visiting Fort Amsterdam and other Curacao attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • For lovers of history it is a propitious place, but if you want absolute rest and disconnect with Sun and beach it is not the right place. Its architecture is beautiful and is the headquarters current of Government.

  • Like many places in Curacao, this site has a great historical importance, has an interesting architecture like the other buildings of Curaçao and is a site that is located close to several tourist spots on the island.
