Chaguaramas Peninsula/Fort George

The Chaguaramas Peninsula is a protected area rich in its natural environment and home to several offshore islands. After a guided tour through the Chaguaramas National Park the journey continues to Fort George. Previously called “Le Vigie” it was built in 1804 as part of a complex of fortifications designed to secure the island against attack. Today it is a popular site housing well preserved relics, including cannons and a jail house. Situated 1,100 feet above sea level the grounds are beautifully landscaped and there is a spectacular view of the North Western Peninsula of Trinidad, the offshore islands, Gulf of Paria and the City of Port-of-Spain.
