Fort George, St. George's

3.5
#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Grenada
Head uphill to Fort George, a historical citadel overlooking the island nation's capital. Built by the French between 1705 and 1710, the fort has had a role in regional and domestic conflicts, including the Seven Years' War and the Grenadian Revolution. Today, the fort still shows damage caused by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, though the early 18th-century masonry left standing remains impressive and worth the trip. Another incentive: the panoramic views from the top of the volcanic hill. To visit Fort George and other attractions in St. George's, use our St. George's tour itinerary planner.

  • Marks an important part of Grenada's history. Costs around $2 to enter and then you are free to walk around the fort and take pictures. Toilets are on site.  more »

  • Nice look out and some great views of the harbour. It's a cheap entrance price at $5.35EC but there is no information once you're in. It would be nice to have some boards to explain the history of the fort. Still I would say it's worth a visit.
  • Love walking around St George. Very busy though with cars surprisingly. Would have loved to have gone into Fort George but it was closed.
