    1700s stone fort, needs informative plaques
    I visited Fort Frederick as part of a shore excursion for a cruise. This fort was built by the French and the British in the 1700s. The fort overlooks St. George’s harbor and the city below, so visitors can see some pretty views. I walked around the grounds on my own, and I felt interested in seeing the stone walls and stairwells. I saw an unfinished, hand-painted sign that mentioned some information about the fort, and I would have appreciated more informative signs.

    Nickname: The Backwards Facing Fort
    Our last stop in Granada was at Fort Frederick. If you climb the stairs to the top you can see all around the city and it would be a great place to proect the harbour from. It withstood the Rebellion of 1795 and became the headquarters of the People's Revolutionary Army during the Granada Revolution from 1979-83.

    Stunning views.
    Well worth a visit to appreciate the views, both over the town and inland. The town views encompass the new government house, the harbour and the town itself. Views inland give Mountain Views and were the direction the guns were directed. Fort is worth a wander giving an idea of the fortifications on the island and indeed the region. There are toilets!

    Visit the fort.
    If you an historian like myself this is a must even if you just get to touch the canons. It is currently under repair and restoration so you are unable to enter the fort itself. It is at the top of a steep climb of steps but the view is well worth it.

A very interesting piece of history. One of the forts built in St George's. Lovely views off the sides looking on all of st George's. Short informative tour telling you about the forts history. Also there is a lovely breeze at the top of the fort which is very refreshing on a hot day.

Fort Frederick was was started by the French in 1779 and completed by the British in 1791, after the island changed hands. The ruins are interesting, but there is not a lot to see here. The views of St. George's are magnificent, though.

Just in Grenada for the day as we was on a cruise ship, had a tour around the island which before the beach we went to this fort high up giving us great views of the capital and the seashore. We only spent around 20 minutes here even though we paid a small entry fee as there wasn’t much to see other than just an historical site with a few walls to be honest.

This is way up on the hill overlooking St. George's. It gives a great view of that side of the island including Grand Anse beach and the town of St. George's. It was attacked by the US during the fighting in the 1980's.

Fort Frederic is another French fort in Grenada set inland and protecting the capital from inland side.
It seemed better preserved and higher elevated than the Fort George downtown. However, you need a taxi to come to visit it, so count on around 2 hours for a complete trip.

Visited this place as part of an excursion and we were so fortunate to have Sophia as our tour guide. This place is loaded with history and Sophia does the best job ever of telling us all about it. She is very good at her job.
