St. Kitts Brimstone Hill Tour Excursion Reviews

St. Kitts Brimstone Hill Tour cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Brimstone Hill, now a A UNESCO World Heritage site, rises 800 feet with steep slopes and possessing a commanding view of the sea, was an ideal natural defense. Work on a permanent fortress on Brimstone Hill began in the 1690s and continued for about a century as the British and French wrestled for control of the island and its valuable plantations.
