Fort George, St. George's

3.4
#1 of 14 in Historic Sites in Grenada
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. To visit Fort George and other attractions in St. George's, use our St. George's tour itinerary planner.

  • Fort George is a historic scenic point overlooking the city of St. George's, Grenada and has an outstanding panoramic view of the harbour and surroundings. The Fort is still in use today by the islands Police Force and it is a tourist attraction as well. The minimal entrance fee goes to the upkeep of the Fort and grounds, it is well wort the price of admission. I enjoyed my visit to Fort George and the picturesque panoramic scenery inspired me to take a closer look at other visible points of interest nearby. There are several vantage lookout points on the Forth all with differing and quite interesting views of the city and beyond. An integral part of the city-scape and a great to visit and enjoy. The Fort George can be seen from other distant forts such as Fort Frederick and others and also from other vantage points as well. I highly recommend a visit to Fort George for anyone in Grenada.
  • Excellent view. Amazing place to get a view of the town of St. Georges along with a view of the south coast. Rich history behind this place.
  • Amazing views of the Island. Sad history but important to know that the people who died believed in achieving the rights for the ordinary people of Grenada
  • Not much to see, but still good to check it out. The view from the top is great and you can take really nice photos. The fort is very old and not maintained. The structures are almost ruins.
  • Historical place associated with the Island Revolution. Beautiful view of the Cruise Ship Port, St George's and the lovely Carenage!!!
