A proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site, St. Helena’s charm lies in its dramatic coastline. The capital, Jamestown, founded in 1659 by the East India Company, is a small enclave sandwiched between imposing cliffs; and offers some of the very finest examples of British Georgian Era Colonial Architecture. Adventurous visitors can take the opportunity to climb the town’s landmark, 699-step Jacob’s Ladder, built in 1829 and still in use today, to take in the exquisite vistas from its apex. Also worth a visit is nearby Longwood, the renowned site of Napoleon’s final years in exile before his death.
