The Capital, Saint George's, is a quite a picturesque city, marked on an architectural point of view, by French and British colonisations. Areas of interest are not numerous and a visit to the town lasts only a few hours. But the ambiance and atmosphere makes you want to walk around a little longer. The Carenage, the horseshoe shaped port, represents the heart of sea activities. The wooden houses disappeared in the 18th century, with two successive fires, and have been replaced by brick and stone houses of Georgian style. The market square hosts the island's most typical, liveliest and most colourful display: It is the place where local products are sold but also the place where everyone meets together, talks about politics and arrives to catch a bus. In short, Saint George's soul. The national museum, after having successively been a prison and a hotel, presents many pieces reminiscent of the island's history. The two forts of Grenada offer beautiful views onto the city. Frederick Fort, located on Richlond Hill, was finished in 1791. Older than that, George Fort overlooks the port and has become the headquarters of the Royal Police. The island's Capital also has many 19th century churches. The Roman Catholic church, Saint Andrew's presbytery and the Anglican church of Saint George are all part it.
