St. Christopher, the first Caribbean island to be permanently settled by both the English and the French (who shared the island between 1627 and 1713 ), was a model and a springboard for English and French colonialism in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

Brimstone Hill Fortress ranked by USA Today as one of the world’s Top Ten Great Places to Discover

In an article published late last week USA Today ranked the Brimstone Hill Fortress in the Top Ten out of 500 must see hidden gems on the planet.  Brimstone Hill is the only attraction in the Caribbean apart from the Venezuelan island of Margarita to make this Top Ten list.  The only other fort to make the Top Ten is Galle Fort in Sri Lanka.  USA Today is the leading print daily in the United States in terms of readership with a combined print and online readership of 20 million readers.  In the story the writer describes Brimstone Hill Fortress as “the most impressive of all the British forts I’ve seen in the Caribbean”.  This follows hot on the heels of a recent article in which another major American publication, U.S News and World Report, ranked Brimstone Hill as the Number One Attraction in St. Kitts.  You may read the full USA Today article by going to this link:
