Fort Frederick, St. George's

4.1
#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Grenada
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.

  • Easy to hike on the trails around the old fortress, which has over time been restored so that no loose stones can fall down on visiting! Especially the view from the Fort is the man most remember from the visit!
