Spanish Town was Jamaica’s capital for more than 300 years. Now circled by ghettoes, it’s very much Kingston’s poor neighbor, although its historic center contains the Caribbean’s most extensive assortment of Georgian architecture (albeit in a sad state of repair), its greatest cathedral and Jamaica’s national archives. Parts of Spanish Town are regularly affected by gang violence. Take local advice, but consider this a day trip only.
