  • Cool place to go with your family and friends. Parking spaces are limited. Has a picturesque view with the sunset so better to visit in evening
  • This was built by Portuguese in 1560 and Dutch took it over in 1658.British occupied the place in 1795. A beautiful place let to harsh sun,heavy rains and see breeze.This lovely place is neglected. See it before it’s gone. Take a hat on a sunny day and avoid stray dogs at that place
  • Good place to see.... We can take photos but no vedio.... There are lots of memento stone....
  • There is much more things to conserve Good location to learn many kinds of architectural buildings in dutch period.study and observe on own.
  • Great Fortress in North West. Be there to experience it.
