The views are good and the place itself is so steeped in history. It’s a bit chilling. Definitely worth seeing and sparing a thought for those history wasn’t so kind to.

We visited during our Island tour and the small museum was full of information on the history behind the Island producing sugar cane before it was no longer profitable due to the growth of sugar beet being grown in other countries.

Sugar mill/sugarcane plantation built in the 1650 and restored as an attraction. Few infrastructures still remain but could use a little bit more of attention from the government for more improvement. Such a rich historical place to just let it rundown. Not much to do...More

A lovely visit to see the restored windmills. There is a restored museum which is worth looking at and they ask for a donation. We had a picnic there and it was so peaceful

Again, if you’re in the area and have never seen a sugar mill it’s worth a stop. There is a very small museum and two mills. An ok photo op.

I thought it was going to be more to see. We read the posters in the central room, but all there was to see was the remains of the windmill

Nicely restored Sugar mill. Gives a real and sobering insight into the lives of those responsible for slavery, sugar and rum. Would have been better if a guided tour with historical knowledge was provided. $2 entrance fee to the museum is misguided...$4 entrance fee to...More
