"Historic Landmarks of Port of Spain" sheds light on the history of one of the most unique cities of the West Indies. Discussion of more than 70 historic sites gives a glimpse of the colourful past and more recent history not only of Port of Spain but of Trinidad & Tobago as a whole.Some of the landmarks discussed are: Columbus Square, named after the Discoverer who encountered Trinidad on his third voyage; Eric Williams Financial Complex, the Eric Williams who led Trinidad and Tobago to Independence in 1962; Fort San Andres which evokes the memory of Trinidad's French background; Railway Headquarters - although there is no longer a railway in Trinidad today; Trinity Cathedral brings to light strong currents of religious conflict in the past; and, Brian Lara Promenade for the legendary cricketer who holds the world record for the highest Test runs - a record he has broken twice. Port-of-Spain knows how to honour its sporting heroes.
