There are many sites in St George that will give the visitor a vivid idea of its history. First, Caribs and British struggled over the control of Grenada, then French and Caribs, then French and British, after that, French and Dutch, (all that in the 17th century) French and British again, many times through the 18th century. There was a long British rule in the 19th and 20th century until Grenada gained its independence in 1974: it enjoys political stability since 1984. Let’s see some of the sites that talk about this history:

- Grenada National Museum, it houses objects belonging to Grenada’s first inhabitants, the Caribs, all through objects that show events of the present century;

- St. George's Roman Catholic Cathedral, it was built in 1818 of Gothic style.

- Fort George, it was built by the French in the 1710s (the French gained control over Grenada at several moments in history: 1639, 1763, 1779 until they finally handed it over to the British in 1783 under the Treaty of Versailles) but still with historical importance in the 1980s. Here, Maurice Bishop was killed;

- Fort Frederick, It was originally built by the British. The English settled in Grenada in 1609 and stayed for a while and went back several times.

- York House, it was built in the late 1700s, it is now the House of Representatives.
