We had some time to kill so we decided to have a look at Fort George, built by the french in 1705. The fort itself is fairly unimpressive and there is no information about it at the site, however it does have a bloody history. In 1983, Prime Minister Maurice Bishop, his supporters and some of the general public were assassinated within the fort by the Marxist wing of their party the only remnants of this event is a plaque which you will need to look closely to find.
The fort does have a beautiful view of the water and the Carenage area of St George
On the walk up to the fort you pass a church missing walls and the ceiling, apparently severely damaged during Hurricane Ivan in 2004.
