Along with three other forts, one just next door and eminently visitable, though not in good condition (the Americans bombed it in 1983), Fort Frederick was started by the French to secure their position after they had so easily captured the island from the British in 1779. The French had confounded the British (who had been anticipating a naval attack) by attacking from inland. Not wanting to be caught out in the same way, the French constructed Fort Frederick with its cannons facing inland, rather than out to sea, earning it the nickname "Backwards facing fort." Fort Frederick gives you a bird's-eye view over miles of green hills to the north and east of the city. Built on Richmond Hill by the French in the 1700's, it has a water reservoir used to supply the prison, and mental hospital in the 70's. There is a also a weather station on the top of the fort.
Leapers' Hill or "Le Morne De Sauteurs", located in the northern part of the island where the Atlantic ocean meets the Caribbean, was named so by the French settlers after the indigenous Carib Amerindians, were defeated by the French for possession of the island. Directly north of the town of Sauteurs is a steep cliff face that descends vertically into the sea for more than 100 feet. It was from the top of the cliff that Grenada's last remaining Carib Indians hurled themselves in 1651, preferring suicide to domination by the French. Leapers Hill is now a Tourist attraction sight for our visitors.
Grand Etang Lake is a tourist attraction sight located in St. Andrew's, Grenada which is to the north of the Island. Surrounded by a rain forest, the lake is located in an old crater approximately 1,700 feet above sea level. The rain-forest around the lake holds a stupendously rich diversity of flora and fauna. Colorful tropical birds, tiny frogs and lizards, and rare orchids punctuate the dense rain-forest vegetation, and the trails meander around the area's stunning waterfalls as well as the azure waters of Grand Etang Lake.

A boucan is a building with huge drying trays on rails, so that the trays can be pushed under the building if it rains, and both pushed under and locked up at nights. What is on the drying trays depends on the time of year: it may be mace, cocoa, cinnamon, pimento, cloves. Inside the building, you will be led to a table where you will be invited to 'scratch 'n sniff' the leaves of a succession of twigs and guess the different spices.
Dougladston will introduce most of Grenada's spices to you. You can buy several spices, including nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves, at Dougaldston Estate, which is one of the island's oldest and largest nutmeg plantations.
