We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this fort. Museum curator was our guided tour, he was a great story teller and held our interest for 2 hours. Worth the stop to learn about history. The historic landmark is a Irma and Maria survior.

This fort it’s located in downtown, around 10 minutes by taxi from the harbour. When we arrived was closed but we took some pictures.
And one crazy thing: you will see chickens around the fort and others streets but I don’t know why.

Newly restored, a spot to add to your must see list. You can wander the various rooms and cells on your own, but having a tour guide would be a definite benefit to learn the history of the structure and the important role it played protecting the Charlotte Amalie harbor.

It's mostly empty. It used to be a prison. The architecture is interesting (very thick concrete walls) and the view from the top is good.
