  • This place is amazing. First time up here and it was worth every minute. The views are amazing. When we visited we were able to see the turtles and their babies swimming, it was so cool!!! The views are breathtaking. The ruins were definitely worth seeing and reading about their history. Make sure to stop here when you are on St Johns.
  • Beautiful little historic site on St. John. It's a very easy short walk around the facility, and perched high up for excellent views out to the waters on one side, and beautiful hills on the other. The ruins lend themselves to fantastic photo opportunities. There are signs placed at each landmark with educational information on what each structure was and how it played a part in the sugar processing.
