Fort George, St. George's

3.5
#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Grenada
Head uphill to Fort George, a historical citadel overlooking the island nation's capital. Built by the French between 1705 and 1710, the fort has had a role in regional and domestic conflicts, including the Seven Years' War and the Grenadian Revolution. Today, the fort still shows damage caused by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, though the early 18th-century masonry left standing remains impressive and worth the trip. Another incentive: the panoramic views from the top of the volcanic hill. To visit Fort George and other attractions in St. George's, use our St. George's tour itinerary planner.

  • Beautiful old history. I only wish they could fix it up a bit more. A suggestion would be guided tours, telescopes and a place for food and drinks. A little bit of investment and some tlc and you will have a real magnet for tourists.
  • Unbeatable view of the Carenage, the port, the lagoon and everything. Colonial Fort with cannons and all. It would be great if they restored it. Warning, it is quite the climb. Take your time. 😆 Bring your camera.
