Here’s an ideal place to get acquainted with the history of the island. As well as to admire mighty architecture of the fort complex of the XVII century.

Do you know why Willemstad (as well as the entire island) is so colorful? Because many years ago, one Curacao Governor decided that light houses hurt his eyes in sunlight. He ordered to change colors into the bright ones. Such a funny whim has turned this place into lively alluring cruise port of call. Come and see it for yourself!
