Situated on a volcanic spine 175 feet above the harbour of St. George’s, capital of the island nation of Grenada, Fort George was seen by John Paul Jones in 1770. Built between 1705 and 1710, the old fort figured largely in the (F&I) Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Grenadian Revolution and the US-Caribbean Intervention of 1983. The original eighteenth century structure is one of the finest remaining examples of a Vauban-style masonry fortress in the world.
