AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If you dig history, especially military history, then you’ll love going inside the Citadel, where you’ll find numerous exhibits and even drill demonstrations from soldiers in period uniforms. This National Historic Site was built by the British in 1856 to fend off the American invasion (which never came) and is an impressive star-shaped fort at the top of Citadel Hill. If you aren’t a history buff, you’ll want to climb up to the fort anyway just for the best view of the harbour and downtown area. As a spooky alternative, a guide in period dress will take you on a candlelit ghost walk of the Citadel on Friday and Saturday nights; check the website for details.
