Located several miles inland, atop the 3,000 ft (910m) Bonnet a L’Eveque Mountain in the town of Milot, Citadelle Henri Christophe is a historical adventure with an astounding view. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, the Citadelle is Haiti’s symbol of liberty and the largest and most impressive fortress in the Americas. Created by and for war, Henri Christophe, one of the leaders of Haiti’s slave revolution, along with more than 20,000 workers, built this massive stone structure to protect the newly independent state from a French ambush that never came. This impressive fortress has survived until this day, almost unchanged.
