Attractions

As the pirate capital of the New World, Port Royal was labeled as 'The wickedest city in Christendom'. The bustling city sank beneath the waves during the devastating earthquake of 1692 but left just enough evidence to tell its story. Silent cannons still keep watch over Fort Charles as they did under the command of Admiral Lord Nelson. An array of precious artifacts have been recovered since the incident and are displayed in the Port Royal Archaeological and Historical Museum. Today, tourists flock here from pretty much all over the globe to witness the remnants of a bygone era that only lives on through Hollywood flocks and fiction novels.
