    Barbados has a rich history and a tradition of maintaining and restoring our historic buildings. Nowhere is this more evident than in the capital city of Bridgetown. Established by the early settlers of the island, Bridgetown has always been a hub of activity much of it centered around the local Parliament and the Careenage where ships from Europe (especially Britain) would bring in supplies and take back with them Barbados molasses, sugar and rum!
