Enjoy a leisurely and enlightening walk through downtown Nassau that takes in the capital’s most historical attractions. Both Fort Fincastle and the Queen’s Staircase were constructed in 1793. The former perches on the island’s highest point and offers spectacular views, while the latter is a 66-step entryway to the fort that was hand-cut out of solid limestone. Nearby, you will see Parliament Square, which is surrounded by pink-hued government buildings that include the House of Assembly and the Supreme Court, where the judges and lawyers still dress in traditional British wigs and robes. The serene Garden of Remembrance lies at the back of the court building; it commemorates the Bahamians that lost their lives in World Wars I and II. The Arawaks, also known as the Lucayans, were among the first people to inhabit the Bahamas, and the guide will likely describe their exploits and how they lost control of the islands once Christopher Columbus arrived.
