Lucea (Hanover)

The Lucea Courthouse is a major landmark, including a tower clock that was actually made for the island of St. Lucia but sent here to Lucea by mistake. Oops…

The good news, however, is that the Clock works perfectly! Some People visit Jamaica just to see it 😉


How Can We Help Guide Yuh’ Today?


Lucea is capital of Hanover parish – Jamaica’s third smallest parish after Kingston & St. Andrew, located at the very northwestern tip of Jamaica – between the Negril and Montego Bay resort areas, each a 20-minute drive away.

Hanover was named after the 18th century’s King George I of England, from the House of Hanover in Germany. Lucea is the site of many historical landmarks.

The Hanover Museum is located in an 18th-century prison and police barracks. The museum was refurbished in 2011 & contains artifacts & exhibits on the area’s pirate history & the grand old days when Lucea was a major sugar and banana export port.
