Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park - St. Kitts & Nevis

St. Kitts & Nevis is another new country. I have to admit that i had no idea where this country was located. St. Kitts & Nevis is a two-island nation in the Carribean.
This card is also from a new Unesco World Heritage Site, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, the only heritage site in the country.
"Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park is an outstanding, well-preserved example of 17th- and 18th-century military architecture in a Caribbean context. Designed by the British and built by African slave labour, the fortress is testimony to European colonial expansion, the African slave trade and the emergence of new societies in the Caribbean." - in:
