2. Experience Brimstone Hill Fortress

Visitors SHOULD NOT miss the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historical and architectural ingenuity came into being thanks to the skills of the British military engineers – and the strength and fortitude of the African slaves who built it.

The fortress got its name because of the strong smell of Sulphur coming from the underwater vents. At 800 feet above sea level, visitors can catch a panoramic view of the island and enjoy the rich history it offers.

How to get to Brimstone Hill Fortress? Consider booking a tour in advance or ride a taxi from Port Zante.
