Port Royal is a village located at the end of the Palisadoes at the mouth of Kingston Harbour, in southeastern Jamaica. Founded in 1494 by the Spanish, it was once the largest city in the Caribbean, functioning as the centre of shipping and commerce in the Caribbean Sea by the latter half of the 17th century. An earthquake devastated the city in 1692, sinking much of its land beneath the sea. The few survivors rebuilt on the site of the present Kingston, across the bay.
Fort Charles was a stronghold located at the bustling harbor town of Port Royal. Located on a bluff overlooking the harbor, Fort Charles was one of England's biggest government forts in the Caribbean. The fort served as the base of operations for British Royal Navy forces commanded by Commodore James Norrington.
The cannons that point out from the battlements were a menacing warning to pirates cruising offshore.

Devon House has since evolved from being a private home to being synonymous with fun, family entertainment and recreation in Kingston, where guests can tour, shop, dine and relax.
