Morne Fortune is a hill and residential area located south of Castries, Saint Lucia, in the West Indies. Originally a fort constructed by the French, it was captured by the British on 24 May 1796. A memorial to the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers still stands commemorating the battle. The original fortifications still stand on the summit and the old military buildings are in a listed historical area. The Saint Lucia National Trust operates this area.
