"Before the pleasant time spent in Carleton Martello Tower, people would build many forts to resist the invasion of others. However, over time, many forts have been damaged, and the few remaining are now protected. The Carleton Martello Tower in St. John’s is like that. I can’t help but share the pleasant hours at Carleton Martello Tower. This small round bunker is built on a hillside on the shore, surrounded by reefs and grass. The design of the tower is beautiful, and the tower body is well preserved. The surrounding scenery is great, and you can breathe fresh air by the way, which makes it very pleasant. There are exhibits and pictures inside the tower, allowing visitors to better understand the past and present of the tower, which is very interesting. It is said that you can enjoy the view of the city from the top of the tower, but unfortunately, tourists are now prohibited from going upstairs to view the scenery. Historical background We watched some video clips inside the tower and learned that the tower was a military installation designed and built by the British more than 200 years ago. It played a big role in World War II. There are guides on the square to give detailed explanations, and you can learn a lot about Carleton Martello Tower, which is very helpful for this tour. I personally think that there are plenty of parking spaces around Carleton Martello Tower and the view is amazing. It can be considered a leisurely hour spent here."
