Fort King George
Talk about a prize! Tobago changed hands 31 times in 200 years.
Historic sites don't play a major part in walking & hiking around Tobago, but this magnificently restored fort 400 feet above the capital city of Scarborough has beautifully kept walking paths and excellent panoramic views.
Built in 1777, Fort King George consists of a lighthouse, powder magazine
and officer's mess. One building has been converted into an art gallery.
Locals will tell you that Tobago changed hands politically 31 times in 200 years, making their island one of the most traded/fought for landfalls in the Caribbean. Tobagoans are kind of proud for having been so highly prized.
