    Saint George, on the island of Grenada, is the jewel in the crown of bougainvillea and hibiscus in an explosion of colors around the pier in the form of an U.
    Its warm waters are perfect for diving near shipwrecks and swimming in the Grand Anse dream beach.
    In Port Louis, located in a natural lagoon very close to Saint George, are the small and colorful fishing boats and elegant yachts, which offer the traveler when strolling along its docks, very beautiful views in a quiet environment that encourages rest and leisure.
    The tourists who arrive at this destination enjoy touring the city, where they know the York House, Georgian style, acquired in 1801, which houses the Parliament, the Senate and the Supreme Court, and in front they visit the Saint George's Roman Catholic Cathedral (1818), whose gothic tower is most visible in the whole city.
    The small National Museum of Granada is also a place of interest which has interesting collections and curiosities such as the bathtub of Napoleon's wife Josephine's childhood.
    Granada was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1498. Because of the
    hostility of the Carib Indians, the island remained uncolonized until 1650, when the French founded Saint George.
    Saint George is part of that paradise that is the Caribbean island of Granada, where nutmeg and cinnamon are grown all year round, and that special atmosphere makes it an idyllic retreat.
    Most of the boats that arrive in Granada dock at the Melville Street Cruise Terminal, which in practice is getting out of the boat and enter directly into the very center of the capital, Saint George.
    The restaurants of the dock of the island offer in their menu the fresh local seafood.
