Spanish Town

Spanish Town is the capital of the British Virgin Islands located on the southwestern coast of the main island of Tortola. It is a small town that has a population of about 1,500 people.

The town is also home to some of the most important historical sites in the British Virgin Islands. One of these is the Virgin Gorda Church, which was built in 1680 and is the oldest church in the islands. Another is the Old Government House, which was built in 1774 and is the oldest government building on the islands.
