    This isn't really the Ecomuseum as mention it the title of the activity but the "Murat Castle". A historic site, an old sugar farm. The Ecomuseum is located in the old House of master, in height of the field. A splendid Park, a beautiful view on the sea and Dominica. This area is part of the 4 sites of Marie Galante of the "the slave route", comprises the Roussel-Trianon, the punch pond House and the indigoteries. Must do in Marie Galante. Do not go through it on the run. On the high, you have a small garden and a pond with old creole hut.
