The appearance of the castle is not square and square. The exterior walls are smoky and historic. There were three cannons and rails, which were movable in those days. Photos in the showroom show the soldiers'living conditions. A military establishment was established in 1795. The castle was managed by British and Indian white soldiers, and black soldiers were incorporated into another army. The soldiers who guarded the castle lived in humble barracks under British colonial rule and had hard work besides training. The castle has not been attacked in history. The Castle ticket is $1. The water tower was closed and could not climb up. From a distance, the water tower is tall, which was the commanding height of the city. Down from the castle, you can see buses No. 1, 8, 21 and 15 not far away. Further on is the Octagonal Public Library. Fort Fincastle is located just east of the first intersection of the public library.
Climb the little-known Queen's Stairs to Fort Fincastle, which was built in 1793 by Lord Dunmore to protect cities and roads. The Fort had three 12 to 32 pounds of artillery, with rails on its base, which could be moved and turned. Historically, the fort had not been attacked. The Bahamas established a military establishment in 1795. The castle was managed by British and Indian white soldiers, and black soldiers were incorporated into another army. There are several showrooms in the castle to show the living conditions of the soldiers. The soldiers who guarded the castle lived in humble barracks under British colonial rule. Besides training, they also worked hard. The fortress also has a TheWater Tower, a 38.5-meter tall water tower funded by the U.S. government in 1928, which was used to maintain the water pressure on the island and provide drinking water for the whole island. Later, the water tower became a tourist attraction because the islanders did not have enough water to divert water into the island. Now the water tower is closed and can't climb up.
On the third day, the cruise ship anchored in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. The tourists disembarked and went ashore on their own. There are Customs at the exit of Nassau Port. When we leave the port, we enter the country. We need to see our passport. We rent a taxi with others to visit Nassau. This is Fort Fincastle.
The scenery is beautiful and the history is long. It is worth visiting.
Simple castle, more like a fortress or fortress, can climb to the top of Nassau scenery.
