Queen's Staircase in Nassau, The Bahamas by 


Image # RF1-0720

Photographer: Jeremy Lavender Photography – Nassau, The Bahamas


Nassau’s most visited attraction is the Queen’s Staircase. Climb the 65 steps, recently renovated, carved out of solid limestones by slaves in the late 18th century, between 1793 and 1794. It is reported that slaves were forced to cut through rocks with axes and other sharp hand tools.

This 102 foot staircase was named in honour of the 65 years of Queen’s Victoria’s reign. Construction of this monument is still regarded as remarkable. For practical purposes, the staircase provides a shorter route to and form Bennet’s Hill.
