About the Tour

Come and explore the priceless legacy that is the
UWI Mona Campus Culture and Heritage Tour
Relive the past Embrace the present

The Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) is 653 acres of history and culture. It has had a long and colourful history dating to the early days of black enslavement when the Hope, Papine and Mona sugar plantations dominated the landscape of the northern Liguanea Plain.

Interspersed among modern architecture, well kept gardens and parks is physical evidence of past eras. The Mona Campus Culture and Heritage Tour is an exploration of this collection of artefacts and structures of historical and cultural significance located on the grounds. Among the outstanding landmarks on the campus are two national heritage sites, the eighteenth-century chapel and the ruins of an aqueduct that channelled water to waterwheels providing power for the sugar cane mills.
