Fort Nassau

Standing on a prominent bluff, the rusty cannons of craggy Fort Nassau point out to sea. Over the centuries, the fort has protected Curacao from the Spanish, French, English and buccaneers.

Built in 1797, the fort was only called upon in battle when the English invaded. Now decommissioned, it remains an important signal station for vessels in St. Anna Bay, and also regulates the opening and closing of the pontoon bridge.

Fort Nassau has hosted a popular restaurant since 1959, serving Caribbean-style haute cuisine and fine wines amid authentic 18th-century decor. It’s well worth adding lunch or dinner at Fort Nassau to your Curacao itinerary.

Take a post-dinner stroll around the battlements for 360-degree views over the island.
