- Oranjestad, Upper Town
Lonely Planet review for Fort Oranje
In the centre of town, Fort Oranje is an intact fort complete with cannons, triple bastions and a cobblestone courtyard. It's perched on the cliffside above Lower Town and offers a broad view of the waterfront below. One of the courtyard memorials was presented by US President Roosevelt to commemorate the fort's role in America's War of Independence.
