Brimstone Hill

This 38 acre fortress, dubbed the "Gibraltar of the West Indies " is situated on the upper slopes of an 800 foot high mountain with superb views all around.  Six other islands can be seen on a clear day and the scenery ranges from rainforests, which cap the mountains, through the gently sloping lands going down to the sea covered with the traditional patterns of greens and browns.  Picturesque towns and villages are included in the scenery and these landscapes are all framed by the blue Caribbean Sea.  Brimstone Hill's scenery is a photographer's paradise. The fortress has been named as a World Heritage Site due to its importance in history. The Fortress, constructed intermittently between the 1690s and 1790s, is of singular importance as being the remains of a large, complete military community of the 18th century. As such, it is a veritable time capsule of international significance.  York highly recomends comfortable shoes for walking.
