Haiti National History Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in northern Haiti.

The park includes the remains of two important Spanish colonial landmarks:

1. The Citadelle is a large fortress built atop a 3,000 ft (910 m) mountain, to deter attacks and to provide a lookout into the nearby valleys.

2. Sans Souci is the remains of a palace that was the royal residence of King Henri I (or Henri Christophe) of Haiti.

The nearby town of Milot makes a good base for exploring the area.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
