Ft. St. Louis, Fort-de-France

3.0
#6 of 11 in Historic Sites in Martinique
Protecting the city from invaders since 1638, Ft. St. Louis treats you to views over Fort de France's bay as well as the city itself. Built from rock, the fort still serves as a naval base and remains listed as a historic site of France. Head inside to find old relics such as cannonballs, or outside to find iguanas surrounding the building. It is thought that they arrived from Guyana or neighboring countries. Visitors can head inside the fort only via a guided tour. Start your trip to Fort-de-France by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

    just to say that it is very difficult to arrive at this site: the kiosk of the tourist office where to get the tickets is very poorly indicated, and closes at 17:00 and Sunday, no Panel homepage or signs to find the entrance to the fort (it's the door bo is blue when it is closed, red if open). In short, 3 attempts and 3 failures. The Agency says that there is little demand in low season, so booking is not possible, to 10 minutes before the departure times "and go to the nerve"... So very disappointed
