The most impressive and most popularly visited of the series of signal stations through Barbados, Gun Hill Signal Station in St. George was once the watch dog and warning system for the island. Should need arise during the 19th century, these signal stations were ready to warn the rest of the island of impending doom. Now, visitors flock to the top of the watch towers to enjoy the panoramic view.
