Fort King George, Port of Spain
(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Visit Fort King George and learn about the history of the island. Built by the British towards the end of the 18th century, the fort has been carefully restored; today, a number of signs reveal the history of the buildings and their various uses. Cannons stand in situ around the neatly maintained grounds, and the old prison has a particularly striking atmosphere. Stop by the well-curated museum to see interesting artifacts from indigenous cultures, 19th-century watercolors of the island, and maps from the 1600s.

  • The drive up may be tedious to some, but honestly the serenity of Fort George makes me feel all tingly inside. I think we all need time to reflect! This place, this view really is awesome. Wish it clo...  more »
  • Through the apparently only road in good condition on the island you come up with the sweat in your hands at the fort. The road is quite narrow and intersect is every time a delicate moment. The locals drive really as cowboys. But the view really pays the trouble and you understand why the British used this as a lookout. Everything is in excellent condition and really worth it.
