The good news is that Calliste is located in St. George's Parish, not far from the busier parts of Grenada, so you'll find plenty of attractions to explore and interesting places to visit during your vacation.

Landmark Attractions

Fort George

If you are looking to do some sight-seeing, visit Campus War Memorial. It is located in Bamboo, 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 found 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.

But that's not all -- you will find a full range of other places to visit. Visit this article which is all about landmarks nearby if you'd like additional specifics.

Natural Attractions

Mt. Hartman Dove Sanctuary

Travelers who like spending time outdoors will often enjoy visiting Mt. Hartman Dove Sanctuary. After an endemic that threatened the local Grenada Dove population, the Mt. Hartman Dove Sancturay was created to protect the bird.

A second attraction you might want to consider is St. Rose Nursery and Garden. Guests to Grenada looking to explore some of the more natural side of the island without leaving the convenience of civilization may want to look at the St. Rose Nursery and Gardens. This compromise of nature and development will take you through a collection of vegetation and flowers that are perfect for a quick relaxing activity.
