It is believed that the genesis of modern Jamaica began with Seville Heritage Park, a site that has been occupied since prehistoric times. It has a rich history that involves Christopher Columbus, a Spanish occupation and an English occupation.
The site is located about two kilometeres west of the town centre of St. Ann's Bay. It is currently owned and operated by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. The park is comprised of The Governor's Castle, the Spanish Sugar Mill, Artesian Workshop, Spanish Church and the British Great House.
