Bridgetown Travel Guide: 77 reviews and 209 photos

With a vibrant rhythm and rich culture, Bridgetown, located in the parish of St. Michael is, in fact, one of the oldest cities in the English speaking Caribbean and has amassed an impressive collection of historical buildings and landmarks.
Also known as the heartbeat of Barbados, it is famous for its wide array of world-renowned jewellery stores, boutiques, gift shops and souvenir shops and home to several banks, malls and restaurants.
The points of interest include Mutual Life Assurance Building, Heroes Square, the Nelson Statue, the Montefiore Fountain, the Parliament Buildings and the Wickham Lewis Boardwalk, where couples love to take photos with the Careenage as a backdrop.
In preparation for the Cricket World Cup 2007, which is being hosted by Barbados and several other islands of the British West Indies, the Government of Barbados is currently carrying out a major redevelopment project for the city.

    Amazing that you get to dive at different Caribbean islands, Grenada and Barbados. Must be a fantastic time.
