The vibrant and colorful port of Castries is Saint Lucia's capital.  Although it was founded in 1650, there have been several major fires that have destroyed most of the older buildings.   In terms of older buildings, Castries does have the 19th century Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and other attractive buildings from the same period around the cathedral.
Travel Tips from people who've been to Castries
Love St. Lucia, especially during the Creole Festival however; be prepared to pay between $30-$50 to travel around the island if you do not have access to your own transportation. Taxis are expensive however I would not drive on my own the first time visiting. It is a mountainous island with lots of twists, turns, slopes and locals going 60 miles/hr. 
Good tip?

Si vous êtes en bateau, faites escale à Marogot Bay, petite anse cachée avec un mouillage dans la mangrove, possibilité de ponton au "JJ's Paradise". Petit paradis avec une langue de sable en guise de plage mais à regretter le développement hotelier qui dénature un peu le paysage.

Petit moment de détente dans les sources d'eaux chaudes, sur la route du volcan de la Soufrière, avec cascade et piscine naturelles. Un pur instant de relaxation. Petit resto sympa en bord de mer au pied du pyton : chez "Benny" très bien et pas cher
