Landmark Attractions

Fort George

If you are looking to do some sight-seeing, visit Campus War Memorial. It is found within True Blue Bay, 0.9 mi. South of central Calliste. Located in on St. George's University, the memorial is in honor of the 19 American soldiers who died during Operation Urgent Fury.

Another landmark that often intrigues visitors is Fort George. It is located in downtown St. George, 3.0 mi. North-Northeast of central Calliste. Completed by the British in 1710, Fort George served to protect St. George's City from attack. Today, only some portions of the fort is open to the public, with the other part serving as offices for the Royal Grenada Police Force.

Grenada National Museum: The Grenada National Museum is housed in an old army barracks and prison that was originally built in 1704. The museum is located off Young Street, and is a quaint locale, but filled with a great deal of interesting information about island history and culture.
