HISTORICAL SITES AND CULTURE

On the Park which overlooks the beautiful Caribbean Sea, are the relic of a water wheel used to operate the old sugar mill, the Overseer's House and a barbecue. Seville Heritage Park is an ideal spot for picnics, relaxation, and for the adventurous. There is horseback riding.

Guided tours are offered at the Seville Heritage Park.

Rio Nuevo Battle Site
Rio Nuevo St. Mary is the site of the final pitched battle between British and Spanish forces to determine possession of Jamaica. The Spanish defeat following five years of guerrilla warfare led by Spanish Governor Arnaldo de Isassi placed Jamaica definitively in English hands. Spain formally conceded Jamaica to England by the Treaty of Madrid in 1670.

Bob Marley Museum
Bob Marley MuseumBob Marley Museum is located along Hope Road in the former residence of the Hon. Robert Nesta Marley.  The house is the original house and still manifest many of the period's characteristics,  such as the broad mouldings, the handmade wooden stair handrails, the lattice work throughout with unique arched shaped doorway and sash windows. The servants' quarters are to the rear of the building. The Museum houses memorabilia of the Legendary Reggae Singer and Superstar Bob Marley. Reggae music is identifiable with Jamaica's culture internationally, and the Museum provides a glimpse into this aspect of our musical culture.

Firefly
Firefly was the home of British Playwright Noel Coward. It was originally called "Look Out" by the famous pirate Henry Morgan since it had been used for that purpose. Noel Coward discovered the site while on an excursion in the area.

He later purchased the property and built the house which now stands on it. He renamed it Firefly Hill because of the little glowing insects to be seen on the property. Coward died at the age of seventy four (74) at Firefly after having written many of his famous plays there. He was buried at Firefly on his favourite spot.

Rose Hall Great House
Rose Hall Great HouseOverlooking the beautiful Caribbean sea, on the hills of the former Rose Hall Sugar Estate, approximately 10km, from Montego Bay, St. James is the very imposing Rose Hall Great House. With the many stories about its former owner, Annie Palmer and the cruelty she meted out to her slaves, Rose Hall Great House is a very popular visitor attraction.
