#3 of 26 in Sightseeing in St. Kitts and Nevis
Architectural Building Garden
Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and dating back over 300 years, Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden is a prime example of Colonial architecture built almost completely from wood. Once the residence of a French military commander, the house functioned as a hotel during the 1960s and was finally restored to its former glory in 2008. Tour the house to learn about its history. It is accompanied by over two acres (0.8 ha) of botanical garden featuring an apiary, cobblestone central courtyard, a private chapel where you can go rum tasting, and a restaurant.
