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.

  • I had the chance to visit the fort with a guide that is passionate about the history of the fort and the city. Maurice has made me discover this story with a lot of humour and self mockery. It's been a real pleasure to discover that with him. /!------With this tour you go discover the history and not every corner of the fort. If you go for photos only you will be disappointed. Positive + guide, his humor and his passion + details and the chronology of history + questions and answers to see if one follows :-) Bonus: I've learned to recognize mangoes I can pick up to eat
