What to Expect
This 2-hour walking tour takes you to see the important sights in Basseterre. The picturesque capital works to maintain its traditional Caribbean architecture, which was influenced by the Europeans and Africans who came to the island. The historic city of Basseterre is a combination of cultures and history dating back to the indigenous French, then Spanish, and English.

The recorded history of Saint Kitts began in 1493 when Christopher Columbus sailed past the island. It is said that Columbus named the island after himself but there is some doubt to the story, he might have really named it after his patron saint.

Visit the site of the first company, stroll through the old village of Irish Town, and learn about Pall Mall Square (now known as Independence Square) where slaves were sold on arrival and goods were exchanged or bartered. See the courthouse and the Heritage Museum, and still have time for shopping in the many quaint local shops.
