Inscription. As you wander the ruins, picture the thriving 18th-19th century sugar factory: big rollers crushing the cane, juice pouring down to the boiling room, and everywhere the thick scent of rum and molasses. This was the Danish plantation era, when sugar dominated the island for 150 years.

The mile walk takes about half an hour. For your safety, and to preserve the historic structures, please do no climb on the ruins.
