Known to the native Amerindians as "Liamuiga" which means "Fertile Island", Saint Kitts was the first Caribbean island to be permanently settled by both the English in 1623 and the French in 1625.  According to UNESCO, "African slaves were brought in from the earliest years of European settlement, and it was on Saint Kitts and the other early colonies that the plantation system, based on sugar production and slavery, had its roots."

Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest fortress ever built in the Eastern Caribbean.  It is a very well-preserved example of 17th and 18th century military architecture in the Caribbean.  Construction began in 1690 and continued intermittently for over 100 years.  Because of its excellent defenses, Saint Kitts became known as the "Gibraltar of the Caribbean".  The Fortress is built on an upthrust of volcanic rock covered with limestone  230 m high.  It is located on the island of St. Kitts, in the Federation of St. Christopher (St. Kitts) and Nevis.  Although it was designed by British military engineers, it was built and maintained by African slave labour.  It is a testimony to European colonial expansion.

Brimstone Hill was abandoned in 1851 and suffered vandalism and neglect for the next century.  In 1965, the site became a national park and has now gone through much restoration.  Visitors can view the hospital, ammunition stores, artillery officer's quarters, the Prince of Wales Bastion, and the Citadel of Fort George.

I highly recommend spending several hours visiting the Fortress.
