Morne Fortune

Keep your eye on the coast as your ship sails south out of Castries Harbour. You’ll soon pass Morne Fortune, a hill overlooking the harbor that was once home to two forts, French and British, and the site of many heated battles between the two powers. The remains of St. Lucia’s oldest structures stand here: guard cells and a powder magazine (a building used to store gunpowder) built by the French in the 1760s. Nearby are colonial-era cemeteries and, on the summit of Morne Fortune, a memorial to the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who were among the British troops that captured the hill from the French in 1796.
