Sights to See: Fort George, Port of Spain, Trinidad


Fort George  Port of Spain.  Built in 1804 and reached via a windy, narrow road, this fort never saw military action and so became a signal house.  Now it is famous for a magnificent view--it overlooks the city of St. James and the Gulf of Paria, and on a clear day you can see Venezuela.
