Brimstone Hill Fortress – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

Brimstone Hill Fortress

Brimstone Hill Fortress, known as the ‘Gibraltar of the West Indies’, is a well-preserved fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site.   Located on a very steep hill overlooking the Western end of the Caribbean Sea, rising nearly 800 feet above sea level. the Fort was designed by British engineers and built by African slaves. There are several buildings at the encampment and a long staircase to reach the main Fort, which has several rooms below the main building, that display artifacts and explain the history of the Fort’s operations.  There is also a short video on the Fort’s history. Once at the top the views are breathtaking, gorgeous and dramatic. Between the size, the architecture, the craftsmanship, the history, and the mastery of the entire construction, it is no mystery why the French and British fought so much for the rights of this beautiful landmark.
