Making the Caribbean world #1 vacation destinations
Finding the perfect Caribbean destination is easy when there are so many great islands and cultures to visit, but that’s also what makes it so difficult. Whether you venture to the Bahamas for the idyllic Caribbean vacation or head to Jamaica to experience reggae and Rastafarian culture, an adventure undoubtedly awaits. Travel to St. Lucia for epic natural vistas, or visit Puerto Rico for a vibrant, lively ambiance. Wherever you choose, you can’t go wrong.
The borders of St. Kitts and Nevis are still closed. However, you can always plan a trip to get yourself a genuine leather bag or rest on the magnificent beaches that line the shores of the Federation. And of course, visit the Brimstone Hill Fortress- Trust us, you will not regret it. But we do have a little disclaimer: the views are guaranteed to take your breath away.
The history of Brimstone Hill Fortress
In the 17th century, the island, covered with sugar cane and lush farmlands, became a territory of great contention among the French, English, and Spanish who sought to gain dominance in the region. But it was only in 1689; as the War of the Grand Alliance raged on, that cannons were mounted atop Brimstone Hill to defend the island from the French, who were quickly gaining territory.
After the surrender of neighbouring Nevis, weapons were taken to lay siege to the fortress. Stranded and with neither food nor adequate water supply, the English were forced to surrender.
In 1783, the island, along with the fortress, was handed back to the English, through the Treaty of Paris.
