By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Located twelve miles west of Kingston, Spanish Town was the capital of Jamaica from 1534 to 1872. It houses incredible architectural jewels of the colonial era. If you travel to Spanish town, you can visit the former British House Assembly, the archeological Museum with its sumptuous façade, the St Jago de la Vega Anglican cathedral, and the former royal stables transformed into a handicraft museum. Also, take a look at the Arawak museum, a vivid depiction of the first people of the island.
