Port Royal and Fort Charles have great historical value. It is rich with history, there are so many questions that I had about that period...I mean come on Port Royal was once considered the "wickedest place on Earth". So suffice to say I was super excited to visit this location. I got there on a Sat evening with my boyfriend...
This was the location where the pirate of the Caribbean's used to hang out. Very historic site, wars took place here, the British and Spanish fought such an amazing history here at this very spot! Great guided tour once inside, entrance fee $25 USD
Actually, it really is a good example of a Fort and there is the interesting novelty of the building sinking Into the ground. Much of Port Royal's appeal in under the sea, but the fort is worth a walk through, especially for history or military buffs.
After seeing Pirate of the Caribbean Movie we had a interest in seeing Port Royal.
The guided tour was $10 each and was very interesting. There were just 4 of us during the 1 hour tour,The guide was excellent.
The museum and displays were small and the fort was limited, but our guide made it great with his local information....
I love history and it is a travesty that this icon of history does not do justice to the immense amount of history it has to tell. Museum has a very few relics recovered from the 1692 earthquake. There are less than a dozen very faded and small poster displays, worn out, and out dated that tell an overview of...
I really enjoyed the museum and the conversation with the man inside. (He'll ask you to look deeply in his eyes. *Spoiler Alert: He's got pirate blood!)
*The ticket sellers out front were not that pleasant. Not sure why.
Part of a small group of ruined fortifications in Port Royal and of interest to anyone with an eye to naval history, and the pirates who made Port Royal infamous.
We had a taxi from Island studios and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
