Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park
Step back to a time when the Caribbean was the battleground of the world's Colonial powers with a visit to Saint Kitt's & Nevis' Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, home to one of the best preserved military fortresses in all of the Americas. Perched atop a 243 meter (~ 800 ft) mountain, the fort is often referred to as the "The Gibraltar of the West Indies" and was the point from which the British and French duked it out in some of the most ferocious fighting that the region has ever seen during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, the fort and surrounding 38 acres has been designated a National Park and World Heritage Site, where you can tour the restored Fort George Citadel, including ammunition stores, officer's quarters, and the Prince of Wales Bastion. The fort commands exceptional views of the Caribbean and nearby islands, including Saba, St. Martin, St. Barts, and Nevis. It's an absolute must see.
