Fort George, St. George's
(3.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Other than a nice view of the island in a few places, there is no information to follow. Also there is trash and poles of junk around. Really not worth it 
  • The fortress above the town, from which good views on everything is in St. George's interesting. In the fortress is the seat of the local police. The most interesting thing-the wall that was shot by Maurice Bishop and the entire revolutionary and his Government.

  • Once you climb up to the top of the stairs (difficult if you are older or not in great shape + the heat/humidity) the fort is ok. Great views with pictures. $2 each to get in.

  • Great place for a short hike and to take some great pictures!
  • Great views of the island! I don't know if there are tours or anything, but we just wandered around and read a bit from Wikipedia. The fort itself isn't super impressive, but the views of grand anse and downtown are spectacular.
  • Great views! Limited parking, great at sunset.
  • This fort will always be the best fort. I'm only a few years old 13 but it's the best!!(#COOL FORT!!)
  • History is preserved while providing a quiet setting for ocean gazing.
