Concierge.com's insider take:

Begun by the British in 1690 to deter other colonial contenders, this landmark stone fortress is the only man-made UNESCO World Heritage site in the eastern Caribbean. A superb military design and ingenious engineering embellish its dramatic setting atop an 800-foot mount on the island's west coast, which also speaks volumes about the talent and tenacity of the countless slave workers who built the "Gibraltar of the Caribbean.'' From the cannon-lined bastions, commanding views extend all the way north to St. Eustacia and Saba. Inside the citadel, Fort George Museum provides a concise history of the island and its European settlement, slavery, and sugar industry.

Open daily from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
