Dougaldston Spice Estate

This old estate showcases a critical portion of Grenada's economy and makes it clear how the nation earned its name of "Spice Island".

What to Expect

Visitors who take the time to visit the old spice plantations and processing factories will get a glimpse at the man power, infrastructure, and work needed to produce the spices that the world demanded. While here, demonstrations will give you a first hand look, smell, and taste of the process.

The majority of the site is abandoned, and as you walk around you can explore the hollow processing centers and imagine how different it would have been as a busy center of economic production.
