Admire the 17th century construction of Fort Amsterdam as you step inside the UNSECO world heritage grounds of Willemstad. Constructed in 1634, the fort features 3 m (10 ft) wide walls and four bastions. Inside, it houses government offices, a cabinet belonging to the governor of Curacao, and the museum of the Protestant community of the city, which is located in the fort church.
