A must see when visiting St Kitts! ! You will be in the sun. Bring sunscreen, hat and sunglasses. The fortress is the most pristine in the Caribbean. There is a short video with the history of the island and fort. The a walking tour of the fortress. Great spot for a lunch!

I grew up on the island and this is the all time favorite place for me to spend a day. I go here on every trip to St. Kitts. Plan to spend all day here if you like beautiful scenery and super clean fresh air and rich deep history.
