A must visit place for any trip to Antigua. The Observatory is monitoring the active volcano. There’s lots of history here on the various eruptions and devastation of Plymouth and the southern half of the island. You should definitely watch the video. It’s also a good spot to see the volcano and the flows from its eruptions.
Great view of the volcano from here! Has a video on what happened and the history timeline of events leading up to the eruption.
