  • Go on Marie Galante without making the Ecomuseum, shame. This is a site to visit as much info

  • Museum on slavery's interesting exposure gives many details about slavery and the living conditions of the slaves at the time. What is unfortunate is that the tour in full hot sun with particularly long audio descriptions. So few people linger to listen to and do that walk vaguely between a few signs before entering the House for shelter. It is well preserved. On the other hand, the exhibition inside is less interesting.

  • Visit the House very interesting Murat with our guide, Chantal, who told us the story of the family Murat and the "ambition of the son who has developed the candy. Very well maintained and Museum Park very informative with old farm machinery. Garden of medicinal plants, mill.
