Fort Frederick

Richmond Hill, Grenada

While Grenada’s natural attractions are largely untouched, its human history has been quite tumultuous—certainly since the 18th century, when the French and British were vying for control. So it should come as no surprise that there is a collection of stone forts scattered about the island. Started by the French in 1779 and finished by the English in 1783, Fort Frederick is positioned 244 meters (800 feet) above sea level and offers the best views of the town of St. George’s.
