Day 100 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Stand Up for the Giddy House

Giddy House, Jamaica

Originally built in Port Royal to store weapons and gunpowder in 1880, this building is located near Fort Charles, one of the oldest in Port Royal. A devastating earthquake in 1692 destroyed the town and the fort, but it was rebuilt in 1699.  Then, in 1907, another earthquake nearly leveled Port Royal again, damaging much of Fort Charles. Part of what remained is the Giddy House, which gets its name from the strange angle at which it is tilted and how visitors feel when they try to stand straight inside the building.

In case you missed any of the past “365 Things to Do, See and Eat in Jamaica“, here they are all together.
