This is a amazing and well preserved Fort. You have to walk through the dungeons and feel what it must have been like. In the courtyard look for the skull and cross bones on the ground. We were told pirates were buried there.? But fun to find.
Take a few moments to view the oldest structure in Charlotte Amalie. The fort is not open for reviews and there is no historical information on site. It is under renovation with no date when or if it will be open to the public. Do not consider a visit to this site as central to your trip. Parking and traffic...
We could only walk passed this outside. It seems like they are getting ready for some needed renovations / updates. It was cool to see from outside, but it was gated off and lots of bricks sitting behind the chain link fence. It really looks like it needs repair from the outside.
It was closed when we visited in late November so was not able to see the site. But looking from the outside, it was very impressive.
Read about it before we got to Charlotte Amalie so it would have been nice to have seen the site in its entirety.
Although the church was not open, it has a plaque, and the locals seem to be very knowledgeable about their islands history. Also while we were there, someone had a private tour and we were able to listen in to get even more information about the site.
