In our very first issue of World Heritage, we report on Barbados: an island that grew in the age of discovery, when the great navigators explored the new world, in search of trade, silver and gold.
In Barbados they found little of value except that the Island was a strategic harbour for men and ships. The British claimed it and build a fortress and a garrison that is the reason for their UNESCO World Heritage status.
In time Barbados grew wealthy on sugar and rum, far beyond its expectations. It is today an exciting travel destination with formidable and well preserved architecture and memories of a forgotten time.
