Fort George, St. George's

(500+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Head uphill to Fort George, a historical citadel overlooking the island nation's capital. Built by the French between 1705 and 1710, the fort has had a role in regional and domestic conflicts, including the Seven Years' War and the Grenadian Revolution. Today, the fort still shows damage caused by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, though the early 18th-century masonry left standing remains impressive and worth the trip. Another incentive: the panoramic views from the top of the volcanic hill. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Fort George by using our St. George's travel itinerary maker.

  • We stopped by for some history. The fort is in pretty rough and in need of additional restoration to bring it back to its former glory. The views of the island were awesome!  more »
  • So glad we visited for the great views, and to hear the poignant history of the place from our wonderful guide Carl) from Sunsation Tours. Definitely a place to stop during an island tour.  more »
  • We got our taxi driver to drop us at the top as rather hot for a steep climb. Walked down to town in a few minutes. The Fort is a quiet place but go for the views. Not suitable for those unsteady on t...  more »

  • The views from the fort were great. There isn't a ton of information about the fort as you enter (it is a small fee to enter) and the place is a bit of a mess, but the views and walk through were enjoyable regardless.
  • The hill is steep from the cruise terminal but at the end of the journey a great monument with a great history is waiting for the visitors to pass it's gates. The views from the fort are absolutely fabulous, most of the surroundings of St George's are visible and so beautiful. Great place which you don't need to miss without climbing up there.
  • This place was historic yes, but other then that and a pretty good view, there's not really anything to do here. I mean, you walk inside, (If you didn't take a bus there you'd probably be swelteringly hot from walking over there) and then you look around at the old walls and stuff, you might go up to the floor on top, see some cannons, look at the view, take a few pictures, then leave. Really, there's just the historical significance and the view, and that's it. I guess if you're into that sorta thing then I'd probably go here, but there's really no point for anyone else unless you're looking for a good view. I will say that when I went there was literally no one there but me the entire time, so it's not crawling with tourists like most places in Grenada, so that's pretty good. And also, there is an entrance fee of $2 USD ($5.35 EC) to get in.
  • Nice spot for sightseeing. Watch out for the bats in the tunnels!
  • Visit Fort George and learn of both the British and French fighting over this Paradise, also Fort George has one of if not the best view of the town of St.George.
