The Queen's Staircase is a major landmark located in Nassau's Fort Fincastle Historic Complex, commonly referred to as the 66 steps. It was hewn by slaves from solid calcareous rock between 1793 and 1794 and is said to provide a direct route to Nassau City from Fort Fincastle. In honor of Queen Victoria, who reigned in Britain for 64 years from 1837 to 1901, these steps were later named.
Only 65 steps are visible as the path leading to the steps has been paved and the bottom step under the asphalt is buried. Great opportunity for photography. Best part is at the top of the stairs there is a Fort to visit and a small gift shopping area .
