“Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We walked up to the fort on a very hot day. It was a bit hard to find, as signage in Marigot is limited. When we found it ( up an alley and hill there was no one there but us. No charge either. Lots of interesting historical information provided. Great photo op.

“Stunning Panoramic Views - Worth the Climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Yes, there are about 160-something steps that must be overcome to reach the top, but it is well worth the climb. Such a stunning, panoramic view of the island from the top. Walk off that last Presidente and take some great pictures.

“Natural History - Magnificent Views Of Marigot & Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

A primarily genuine piece of history as the site high above all provides a gorgeous view. Not really that much to see other than for interested history buffs that also like the adventure to climb the steep slope and steps to get there. Fort remnants relatively in tact in a very unrestored but natural state so the visitor can get a real feel of authenticity of what was there when it was built back in the 17 th century and beyond. Worth the trip to experience it......

“Very underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

Very underwhelming. From a distance the fort looks like it might be something interesting. On arrival you find there isn't much there. Good views. That's about it.

“A must while in Marigot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

A short hike up the hill right in the center of town. Not only will you be able to learn about Margot's history but you will also enjoy an amazing view. Entrance is complimentary. St. Martin is part of the EU and you will much get a feel of the Côte d'Azur here. Enjoy.
