      About this Castries tour

      Ladies and gents, this isn’t your average walking tour. Today you’re transformed from well-meaning travelers to power-hungry contestants, each fighting for the chance to claim victory. Our Castries photo scavenger hunt is designed to teach you a thing or two about Castries’ turbulent history, just make sure you keep your eye on the prize.

      Founded in 1680 by French settlers, France and Great Britain spent the better part of the 18th century fighting over St. Lucia’s tropical land: The island changed hands fourteen times before she was finally ceded to the British in 1814, who would remain in control of St. Lucia until 1979.

      A little competition did Castries right, as the culture today is a delightful mix of British charm and French mystique. It’s no less evident in Castries’ architecture, a mishmash of stone plantations, trompe l’oeils, and Victorian influences. Each of your clues will reveal a clever hint about the significance of these colonial buildings.

      It’s your mission to solve your clues and snap a photo at each location today, and the winner takes all: There’s a special prize for the team with the most points. To the victor go the spoils, but this is a game in which everybody wins – after all, you spent the day touring Castries.  So grab your friends, or make some new ones, on this amazing race.

      Need a hint?

      Here’s a little something to start you on your way. St. Lucia was home to two Nobel Prize winners, one in literature and the other in economics. The former, Derek Walcott, even has a square named after him in Castries. To find it, look for a lovely park lined with 19th century buildings.
