Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Pros: I love the tour . It was fascinating.

Cons: They need to stop having vendors inside the fort.
It's ludicrous.
Too many people at the entrance it gives unsafe feelings, plus they kept asking you for money like you were a machine.

Go for a trip to Cap-Haitian, the 2nd city of Haiti. It's better if you have a private car. Then, from Cap-Haitian you continue to Milot, a small town on the way to Hinche, Pleateau Central but it's interior a bit. In Milot lies the church with black dome, then the palace of the first Haitian King: Henri Christophe. From Milot, we claimed the hill on horseback to the citadelle It is considered as the 8th wonder of the world by the haitian, built to protect the northen of haiti safe from an eventual return of the french colonizer after the war for the Haitian independence

Very historical and a must see if you come to Haiti. Get a tour guide to explain the history of the citadelle.

Where should I begin? In my opinion and according to my research: Citadellle shouldn't have been the 8th Wonder of the World at all; better yet It should have been at least part of the top 3 wonders of the world. It's a Miracle to me and to all of us as a group that was there. My entire family and our friends family learned so much, the tour guide was amazing and very educational and my daughters made the liaison with Henri Christophe because they saw his statue once when we visited Savanah Georgia: as one of the Haitian soldiers who came to fight the Battle of Savanah Georgia of 1779. They were all proud, thrilled and happy. We will definitely go back again.
PS: Citadellle built in 1820 by King Henri Christophe with 3000 feet elevation which almost top Yosemite National Park in California with 4000 feet elevation. Citadellle is located in one of the most safest and beautiful suburb of Cap Haitien, North of Haiti name Milot. My advice is to always be open minded and always your homework first with every place or country in the world, hence: not all Haiti is bad and unstable.

On a mission trip to Haiti in the early 80's, (wasn't able to select that date from the pulldown menu) this was one of the "breaks" we took on one day of sight seeing. Wow. We took a taptap (riding on TOP of a VW Microbus) to the Citadelle, then took the ride on a mule up the steep narrow mountain path. Absolutely worth taking time to see.

Close to the sky, situated on the top of the mountain, this fortress is breathtaking. For athletic visitors is an excelent choice to walk to the top (around 40 min), but you can also ride the horses. The ideal is to go with a guide so you can know the history importance of this monument that Is a must to visit The Citadelle.
It was recognised by UNESCO as a protected site in 1982, and is still the largest fort in the Americas.

The Citadelle is also known as Citadelle Henri Christophe. It is located at the top of mountain Bonnet a L’Eveque, which is 950 meters high. Public transportation goes as far as Milot, so it is probably best to arrange a guide to reach the fort. The narrow road leading to the fort is 6.3 km in length, and starts at the Sans Souci Palace site. The first four kilometers can be driven in a 4WD vehicle or bus. The many bike taxis in the village are also an option for the braver tourist. The road ends at a car park which has bathroom facilities and gift shops.

At this section, the road narrows but can be navigated by bike taxis, horses or on foot. A sign to the left states "Site de Ramiers" 2.64 km, which is a small fort just beyond the main structure. The path is in good condition, but will be dangerous for bikes if wet, as it is very slippery. The walk will be difficult if you are not used to trekking, as there are areas which are quite steep. If you are not used to trekking, there are horses available at an additional charge.

There are two smaller fortification structures on your right as you walk towards the main fortress. On reaching the main fortress a few canons are on display outside, but the main weapons are inside the double wooden gates. On entering the gates, a chapel is to the left. This building now houses generators and other equipment for the maintenance of the fort. As you climb up to the next level, the vast array of canon balls are displayed. This will give an appreciation of the work which was involved in hauling all these weapons to the top of the mountain. The canons all have 18th century dates which are still clearly seen.

The fortress was closed on the day, and rain fell throughout our trek to the top, which made taking photos almost impossible. Due to the rain and fog, we couldn't experience the spectacular views which this site is famous for. We hope to return in better weather to experience the interior of the fortress and the spectacular views. After defeating the French in 1804, Emperor Dessalines tasked his Liuetenant, Henri Christophe, with constructing the fortress on Peak Laferrière. Henri was familiar with the terrain, having worked on a farm in Milot. The architect was Henry Barré, but Henri was intimate with all details of the construction. The fort was built between 1805-1820.

The fort is approximately 10,000 m2, and has walls 3 m wide and over 30 m in height. Over 2,000 soldiers could be comfortably accommodated. Look out for the wide drainage areas leading away from the fort, which could also be used as secret passageways to stealthily move soldiers. The fort originally had 365 cannons, but many of these have been removed. The ammunition supplies appear to have remained intact from 1820 when King Henri died. It was recognised by UNESCO as a protected site in 1982, and is still the largest fort in the Americas. The fort was never used in battle, has survived many earthquakes and was last renovated in the 1980's.

This place is great for people who love adventure, considering it’s located on one of the highest mountain in the island. It’s great for visiting with friends and family members.

Amazing architecture and history. To learn this part of the Americas history astonished me. The blood, sweat and death that went into building this fortress... Wow. A great workout for those who want to walk the trail. Definitely a hidden gem
