If you're on the lookout for an enjoyable experience, Cotton Tower Signal may be just what you're looking for. Back in the 19th century the Barbados military utilized a series of signal stations to give island wide warning when a threat would occur. They were built on highly elevated ground both so that the military officers would have a good view of the surrounding area as they stood watch, and so that others would see their signals.
