Fort Oranje Write Up Kralendijk Bonaire

(as per guide description)

Fort Oranje

Probably built at the end of the 1700’s. The commander of the island lived here until 1837 when his new home was built next door. The fort never saw action. The cannons are old English cannons – they date between 1808 and 1812. A wooden lighthouse was built around 1868 and was replaced by a stone structure in 1932. Over the years, the building has been used as a government center and warehouse for government goods, as a prison, police and fire station. The fort building was restored in 1999 and is now the courthouse.

Some of the sidewalks in Kralendijk are beautifully done like this flamingo laid in stone, so when you are walking around, look down as well as around.
