Fort Louis, Marigot

4.1
See the French flag proudly flapping in the breeze over Fort Louis, the ruins of a late 18th-century fort. Built in 1789 on a hill overlooking the town, the fort defended the warehouses dotted around the harbor area. Having fallen into disuse over time, the stronghold has recently undergone restoration, and now gives a sense of how the complex functioned as a whole. Learn about the fort's history from the number of information panels dotted around the site, and take in sweeping views of the town below and the bays along the coast.

  • Worth the winding directions to get there, and the hike up the stairs from the parking lot. Once you arrive at the top the views are stunning!  more »
