Fort Adelaide was virtually never used except to accommodate a small garrison from time to time. Fort Adelaide was built in a strategic location overlooking the harbour of Port Louis which made it easy to look out for any incoming enemy vessels. There is an underground tunnel which links Fort Adelaide with the harbour. The British are thought to have built this forte in fear of a civil war from the remaining French settlers on the island.
