Get lost along some of the back streets if you're renting a car! Great places to get souvenir pics of your cruise ship!

If you’re renting a car, get lost along the many roads (not just the main one up The Morne) as there are beautiful old buildings and charming houses to be seen along the back... read more

Sweeping view over Castries from the top of the hill all the way to Martinigue on a good day. Also the University of the West Indies and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States. Seeing all the students in their different uniforms coloured coded according to the subjects they were studying was interesting too.

On a day with good weather, this is a scenic spot for photographers. This is just one of the many beautiful spots on St. Lucia.

Nice view of Castries but not much else in Morne Fortune, worth a visit though for the view. Try and go on a clear day so that you can see further.

Ask your driver (or drive yourself if you rented a car) to take you here for a nice panoramic view of Castries. It's definitely worth 10-20 minutes here. And while you are up at the hill, you can see the Governor's mansion, and a little further drive will take you to the local University... which is not all that special,... More

Essentially this is a high hill which has the Governer's residence at the top and offers a great view across Castries

I've been to the Morne tens of times and the view is always outstanding. If you get the chance please go see the postcard view of Saint Lucia. This is honestly the best view of Castries and you will not regret coming here. Yes yes yes !

Excellent spot for getting a panoramic view over Castries. Local vendors are also there selling many different types of homemade souvenirs.
