The modern capital, Kingstown, was founded by French settlers shortly after 1722, although Saint Vincent had 196 years of British rule before its independence.[5]

The botanical garden, conceived in 1765, is one of the oldest in the Western hemisphere. William Bligh, made famous from the Mutiny on the Bounty, brought seed of the breadfruit tree here for planting, c. 1793.[6]


The town is surrounded by steep hills.[7]


The city is served by Argyle International Airport, which has commercial passenger services to the United States, Canada and, soon, to the United Kingdom.
