St. Lucia Sights

Government House

  • House/Mansion/Villa

Updated 03/10/2015

Fodor's Review

The official residence of the governor-general—and one of the island's few remaining examples of Victorian architecture—is perched high above Castries, halfway up Morne Fortune (Hill of Good Fortune), which forms a backdrop for the capital city. Morne Fortune has also seen more than its share of bad luck, including devastating hurricanes and four fires that leveled Castries. Within Government House is Le Pavillon Royal Museum, which houses important historical photographs and documents, artifacts, crockery, silverware, medals, and awards; original architectural drawings of the house are displayed on the walls. Note that you must make an appointment to visit.
