I knew nothing about the fort, but the tour guide shared great facts about Danish occupation of the fort and history of its construction all the way to current day. Supporting these landmarks is a fabulous to preserve history. Check it out.

Amazing architecture, especially since this structure dates back to the 1600's. Loved touring this historic landmark! If you're in Saint Thimas and enjoy history, this is well worth your time.

Excellent tour guide was Levi, who took us back to when the Danish owned the islands. Quite thorough and informative as well as inexpensive.
