Fort Fincastle: This amazing fort was built in late eighteenth century by Viscount Fincastle, also known as 'Lord Dunmore'. It has been built on Bennet's Hill and can be reached by climbing Queen's Staircase. A guided tour to this ancient fortress is highly recommended and there are many shops close to it where tourists can buy some souvenirs.

Fort Charlotte: It is the largest fort of The Bahamas, which offers great views of Nassau. Built in 1788 when Lord Dunmore was the governor, it is considered to be an important fort of Nassau.

Fort Montague: Peter Bruce, a military engineer, had built this fort in 1741 for the protection of Nassau Harbor’s eastern entrance. It is the oldest fort of Bahamas and was also used by Americans for a certain period during American Revolutionary War.

Gregory's Arch: Named after John Gregory, who was the governor of Bahamas during the mid-nineteenth century, this arch is located at an intersection of the streets of Market and Duke. It also separates downtown from the neighborhood of Grant's Town.

Queen's Staircase: Believed to have been carved out of a solid cliff by slaves in the late eighteenth century, this staircase was named to honor Queen Victoria. A narrow road that leads to this site has a straw market along it where tourists can buy souvenirs.
