Historical Landmarks

Take a step (or 66 steps!) back in time during a visit to the Queen’s Staircase. Check out the incredible views from Nassau’s three historic forts, dating back to the 1700s – Fort Charlotte, Fort Fincastle, and Fort Montagu. Tour centuries-old churches, colorful government buildings, and colonial structures and learn about the events that shaped their creation to present day. Nassau Paradise Island boasts a rich history – take some time to hear about the past and visit some of these fascinating sites, either independently or during a guided tour.
