Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
Reward yourself with spectacular panoramic views from a landmark steeped in history at Fort Frederick, a pleasant addition to any St George itinerary. Built in 1779 by French invaders, who won the island by catching the British unprepared with an inland (instead of naval) attack. The fortification became known as “the backward facing fort,” due to its cannon’s position facing toward the island in an attempt to prevent future copycat attacks. As you wander around this crumbling military relic, you will be greeted at every turn with striking views of the coastline and the glittering horizon of the Caribbean Sea. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Fort Frederick and many more St. George's attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's St. George's trip generator.
