Fort George, St. George's

#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Grenada
Historic Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • It's my parents place of birth. A beautiful country with lovely people. The summer time and February are the best times to go. Summer as it is carnival season and February for independence day.
  • Good insight into Grenada's history from a walk round the fort. Lots of steps and slopes and rough walkways. But great trip.
