This is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, off the east shore of North America about 1,070 km (665 mi) east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, 1,236 km (768 mi) south of Cape Sable Island, Canada, and 1,578 km (981 mi) north of Puerto Rico. The capital city is Hamilton.
The first known European explorer to reach Bermuda was Spanish sea captain Juan de Bermúdez in 1503, after whom the islands are named. He claimed the apparently uninhabited islands for the Spanish Empire.
Historic St George’s is a designated World Heritage Site.
Bermuda’s most popular visitor attraction is the Royal Naval Dockyard, which includes the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Other attractions include the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, the Botanical Gardens and Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, lighthouses, and the Crystal Caves with stalactites and underground saltwater pools
The Town of St. George is the oldest continuously occupied town of English origin in the new world. Picturesque cottages, quaint lanes and alleyways and a wealth of historic architecture attract visitors from all over the world.
The town and its surrounding fortifications were recently designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO. The Town of St. George contains many 18th century homes and colonial landmarks, forming an interesting blend of both colonial and modern worlds.
