Create an itinerary including Fort Louis
See the French flag proudly flapping in the breeze over Fort Louis, the ruins of a late 18th-century fort. Built in 1789 on a hill overlooking the town, the fort defended the warehouses dotted around the harbor area. Having fallen into disuse over time, the stronghold has recently undergone restoration, and now gives a sense of how the complex functioned as a whole. Learn about the fort's history from the number of information panels dotted around the site, and take in sweeping views of the town below and the bays along the coast. For Fort Louis and beyond, use our Marigot tour itinerary tool to get the most from your Marigot vacation.

  • Beautiful views of the island. Very easy hike to top. The markers are a little old and faded, but the ruins were clean for the most part.

  • Quite easy to get to either up to the car park or a quick set of steps to the right of the mall. Great views of Marigot and was a nice breeze at the top!
