We'd been told by our guide that the story was of two brothers who liked a girl - one built a deep well, the other built the tower. You get dropped off just by a railway-level crossing. After walking up a small street lined with...More

Impressive tower built to watch over the slaves in the sugar can fields, in the Valley of the Sugar mills. Great place to buy the hand embroidered table cloths, as there are meters and meters of clothing lines with the beautiful pieces on display. Spectacular...More

It was interesting to climb the tower and the next-door former owner's house in order to understand how a sugar plantation was run in former days.

Cool spot to climb and take photos. There are some shops and restaurants nearby as well. Definitely worth 1-2 hours of fun.

I didn't get to spend long here but I did walk up the 130+ steps and was rewarded with spectacular views across the valley. The site is lovely and worth a visit.

A tower that gives wonderful views of the area. Not the easiest climb but worth the view once at the top. It is a great sadness that it's history is of being a watch-tower for the slave plantation. This needs to be kept in mind...More
