A small tour bus group stopped here. This concrete-walled fortress sits on a hill overlooking the cruise ship port. The passage is narrow, steep and crowded with tourists and vendors. Drivers need to pay attention, because tourists are not. The entrance fee to enter the fortress is small ($3). But I decided to walk around the area and visit many shops and handicrafts. The local woodworker is very talented and he will personalize any purchase. In a small neighbouring building there are toilets and a very small area where you can buy drinks and snacks. There are free parking lots around the fort. The fare is high and driving is the most difficult.

This castle is the oldest building in the Bahamas. The entire castle has a history of decades or even hundreds of years. The interior of the castle is full of labyrinths. You must pay attention to the route and time when you walk and visit here.
The largest and oldest castle in the Bahamas, Charlotte Castle is a great place to experience adventure. Walking along the stairs, you can see the sculptures on the walls and the design of the castle everywhere.
Charlottenburg is a very important castle structure. The whole building is a defensive place. The structure of this castle is also very unique. You can see a lot of interesting things. Some huge stone pillars are also very grand.

Fort Charlotte is on Chippenham Road on West Bay Street in Nassau. It is the largest fortress in the Bahamas. It was built in 1787 and completed in 1819. It used to be free here, but now it’s charged, but fortunately, it only charges $1.08 per person. There was a guide at the door to show you around, but we couldn't understand it anyway. The guide accompany you both cautiously and tipped, and declined. Built by Governor Lord Dunmore, Charlotte Castle was originally a stronghold of British troops against pirates in the colonial era. It guarded the entrance to the western port of the city. The castle is equipped with 42 cannons. The muzzles of the old artillery on display still point to the port. The castle is composed of three fortifications, with a moat outside, a suspension bridge surrounded by underground caverns, passages and vaults. There are many tourist minibuses parked at the gate of the castle, all of them are guests coming off the cruise ship. Looking at the cruise terminal in the distance, there are actually four big cruise ships docked there. The small vendors next to the parking lot have better business than the castle. Maybe everyone thinks the castle is not worth seeing.
