Bermuda’s Martello Tower was built of hard Bermuda stone in the 1820’s. The fort looks like a cylindrical egg shaped tower and follows a design inspired by a fortress at Martello Point, Corsica. It was restored in 2008 and a cannon from Fort St. Catherine was mounted on the tower so that it looks like the original fort of 19th century. Martello Tower is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and may be viewed from the outside only. It is located on a hill at Ferry Point Park, near Whale Bone Bay, a section of the Railway Trail and other coastal defense sites. You can reach the area by bus route #1, 3, 10, 11, then a 30 minute walk.
