Fort Berkeley Feb 16, 2008
This small fort was built on a peninsula in front of english harbour, thus on a strategically important position. In 1704, the first stone of Fort Berkeley was placed and the structure was in use until the late 19th century. The most important parts are the gun battery at the end of the peninsula, the guardhouse and the bomb-proof gunpowder magazine on the side facing the harbour. On the battery, a 25-ton gun with the coat of arms of King George III is still preserved. Unfortunately, the rest of the fort was left into decay. It was in 1989 when first restorations took place. Today, the fort is open to visitors for free. Though it is great to see these ruins, do not expect to spent far more than ten minutes here.
