Buona Domenica da Bridgetown – Barbados
Bridgetown was founded on July 5th 1628. Over its three hundred years of existence, this beautiful city has amassed an impressive collection of historic buildings and landmarks.
Indeed, this city, which is considered the heartbeat of Barbados, is as famous for its wide variety of shopping areas and malls as for its numerous restaurants, bars and arcades.
A great way to see the city sights is by the new shuttle tour service which uses sun powered vehicles a first for the Caribbean.
The Government of Barbados is currently carrying out a major redevelopment project for the city, which entails restoring historic landmarks and adding more trees.
Doing a tour around this 375 year old city is a favorite activity for many tourists and cruise ship passengers to the island. Of interest are the Mutual Life Assurance Building, Heroes Square, the Nelson Statue, the Montefiore Fountain, the Parliament Buildings and the Wickham Lewis Boardwalk, where couples love to take photos with the Careenage as a backdrop.
