Brimstone Hill Fortress
Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is one of the best preserved historical military fortifications in the Americas, designed by the British and built by slaves.
It originates from the 17th and 18th centuries. The fortress is located on the island of St. Kitts.

My husband and I chose St. Kitts as our honeymoon destination because of its Caribbean location and because it had a World Heritage Site. Brimstone Hill was impressive and provided us with a spectacular view of the island! Ben is right - the island is not so touristy but I think tourism is gaining momentum, so hurry and visit!

My visit to Brimstone was no more than 15 minutes, but this imposing fortress took me back in time and I half-expected to see a ship bearing the Jolly Roger approaching the shores below. The fortress, perched atop a magnificently defensible hill, offers unmatched panoramic views of the verdant slopes of this small yet authentic island that didn't appear to have sold its soul to tourism just yet. I highly recommend renting a scooter and circling the island which is a feasable one day excursion
