"Money capital" Charlestown by Assenczo

Charlestown Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 28 photos

Charlestown might be half an hour away by boat from Basseterre but could not be more different. First the scale is much smaller and the buildings much neater. Second, it is surgically clean compared to its counterpart. Third, it is an embodiment of tranquility where the word noise has not come into being yet. Actually, the immediate impression on landing is that one has ended up in some Cinderella hideout in a quant part of Europe without any tropical blemishes. The owners of photo cameras will find it very difficult to restrain themselves from immortalising ALL the houses lining the streets. This is the place where one can encounter the architectural style of “skirt and blouse” housing in its best-preserved condition. The sky is the limit when it comes to this fantasy in wood and colour perched on a solemn pedestal of stone.
