  • The entire area seemed serene and relaxing with an appeal to the nature lover and the historian. The mature trees, the hewed stone that make up the stairwell, the live music and the story tellers add ...  more »
  • This was well worth the trip. I was not sure what good a staircase could be, but now I know why it is #1 on the “to do” list. Very impressive history and very beautiful.  more »

  • The fort & staircase are nice to visit if you have the time, but don't expect to be blown away. Easy to go to by walk or taxi from downtown. Free entrance to the complex, however there is a 3 dollar charge for the fort. Views are nice from the top as the fort is the highest place in Nassau.
  • A jewel to discover during your visit to Nassau. The 66 step staircase has a meaningful history. The beautiful garden and waterfall seems to celebrate the joy of freedom that is symbolized here. Worth the visit for not only photos but a moment of reflection on our sufferings, humanity and future.
