  • Acting is a beautiful church built in the Byzantine style. Its interior decoration is quite simple, my subdued hand-made composition dedicated to Christmas. From the heights of the Hill on which the Church, offers a panoramic view of the island and the Caribbean Sea. Yes, and on the way to the Cathedral on the sides you can see many interesting things:)

  • Found this by taking the wrong road, and its impressive with a beautiful view over Martinique. Unexpected! 
  • Sacred Heart in martinique, reproduction in the same style. On the road to balata, quiet place. A see, for example, stopping on the road of the balata gardens

  • This is a beautiful Catholic Church on the Route de Balata on a mountain overlooking Fort de France Bay. The church sits adjacent to a convent and is surrounded by lush vegetation and the most magnificent and fragrant tropical flowers. If you are walking the countryside, traveling by car, or visiting the church on a guided tour bus, it is not only scenic it is an oasis of tranquility. You're able to sit and eat your packed lunch of the most delicious creole cuisine, take pictures of birds, flowers and of boats in the near Caribbean sea for hours, read a book, hear yourself think, or even venture into the church to sit in a wooden pew and pray or meditate. The beautiful rustic church edifice itself is in various stages of continuous repair, which gives the visitor a true feel of the age of the church and a wonderful connection to the local people who come regularly to worship. The church is abutted by its cemetery which is a haven of local genealogical history. If you visit Martinique, it is without equivocation a must see and a most magnificent destination.
  • A very beautiful church, modelled after the Sacré Coeur in Paris. On your way to or from the Balata Gardens, it's also a must-visit!
  • Impressive to see a minimuseo sacred Coueur in the middle of a Caribbean island, and with a view of nature

  • Beautiful church on the heights of Fort-de-France in green surroundings. It is a replica of the sacred heart.

  • A great resemblance indeed :) but inside Conversely it is not the same thing, and it's not really worth the visit. However the view from the courtyard is beautiful.
