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.

It's my parents place of birth. A beautiful country with lovely people. The summer time and February are the best times to go. Summer as it is carnival season and February for independence day.
Good insight into Grenada's history from a walk round the fort. Lots of steps and slopes and rough walkways. But great trip.
A key historical feature of the island that provides in insight into Grenada as an island and it's cultural foundation. Colonial & post colonially significant, with the additional amazing view.
Make sure you bring your water & walking stick if your not used to the heat and walking up hill. The View is spectacular & the site gives one an Idea of how it must have been back in it's day. A must see for many.Certainly for us.
Cheap, but don't expect exhibits or other information to be posted. Great views, but not in the best repair. Lots of overgrown weeds. Also seems to be attached to the police station on one of the sides so you may see someone with a rifle.
