St. Lucia Sights

Government House

  • House/Mansion/Villa

Fodor's Review

The official residence of the governor-general of St. Lucia—one of the island's few remaining examples of Victorian architecture—is perched high above Castries, halfway up Morne Fortune—the "Hill of Good Fortune"—which forms a backdrop for the capital city. Morne Fortune has also overlooked more than its share of bad luck over the years, including devastating hurricanes and four fires that leveled Castries. Within Government House itself is Le Pavillon

Royal Museum, which houses important historical photographs and documents, artifacts, crockery, silverware, medals, and awards; original architectural drawings of Government House are displayed on the walls. Note that you must make an appointment to visit.
