One of the Best Vews in the West Indies

First of all you can see all of Castries. Second there is a great house on the mountain which is very nice. Last the views are to die for .

Once in the area, go to the Batik Caribelle where you have the same view without the elictrical wires. Also, visit the University Campus.

On the day we were in port, there were 4 cruise liners. It was impressive to see them up close when we left and returned to the ship, but even more imposing when viewed from Morne Fortune. If you're on a tour, the odds are that you'll drive here and stop to take pictures, and you certainly should do just... 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.

Morne Fortune is worth visiting as it is the old part of Castries and when you reach the top of the morne( french word for hill) the view of the Castries Harbour day or night is breathtaking. Inexpensive attraction. you can get there by taxi or on the local bus. easy access. don't take too much money with you if... More

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

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 streets! This is the best place to get an overview of Castries and the coastline and to get your bearings as to where you are and... More

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