Saint Kitts and Nevis Things to Do: 66 reviews and 173 photos
Brimstone Hill Fortress is a National Park located in St Kitts. Preserved by UNESCO as a world heritage site. This site, built by the British Military between the 17th and 18th century is one of St Kitts finest attractions. Captivating, educational and provides a great half day visit.
My visit prior to this was in 1984 or thereabouts where i was only 2 years old! I don't remember the visit, but I have a picture to prove it.. I attempted to take another picture in the same location on my visit.. but I was taking the picture myself, so wasn't too successful.
I visited on a Sunday morning where most of the locals were seen carrying their books to church on the drive there. It is a steep drive up to the main entrance of the fortress where I was welcomed by several wild monkeys, cats and two cows. I was personally shown around by this gentleman who claimed to have worked there for nearly 20 years, although he looked particularly young ( he was also single and I think possibly hoping I would migrate there..) I particularly enjoyed the breathtaking views the fortress offered including the surrounding islands.
Well worth the visit.
