  • Beautiful ruins; great view of the city proper. Definitely go through with a guide who can give you a bit of the history and knows all the nooks and crannies to safely explore. Just a few dollars...  more »
  • A mind blowing historic site ! The ruins make the imagination reconstruct how luxe of a palace this must have been. The greenery surrounds you and the courts are so vast! The tree of justice still stands although held by cables but just a magnificent place
  • Local guides give you an history that makes you dream. In the site there's a tree with the legend that it was there before the construction of the Palace meaning it is more than 200 years old. The tree is called The Tree of Justice. It is where King Christopher held trials. Very beautiful site. A must see !
  • One of the cutest historical place in Haiti.
  • Great little walk around. Many people will push you to buy their stuff
  • Real ruins. No guardrails. Local guides. Local food. Yum
