Fort Pezeries

Since at least 1680 there has been a fortification of some sort or another on this site. During the 18th century, the gun platform was extended and steps added, while the magazine was built and the parapet strengthened at a later date. By 1842 the fort had fallen into disrepair, but restoration work has partially restored the site and now three 18 pounder cannons look out over Rocquaine Bay on the south west coast of the island.
