The Circus, Basseterre

1.6
Head to the heart of Basseterre and get a feel for the buzz of the town at The Circus. A common meeting place among locals, the area is made up of a traffic circle and a tall green clock and fountain in the center. The clock, erected in 1883, stands proudly as one of the major landmarks of the area. The small square acts as a good starting point to see the rest of the town. A visit to The Circus represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Basseterre online route planner to plot your vacation.
