  • Stroll in the city and make a small jump in the public market! Very friendly vendors and sellers. Seller of t-shirts that prints prints you choose with first name if you wish (a great gift to bring back children) discoveries and nice friendly vendors! Watch the meter. It is very difficult to park in tot go Park in the course Perinon (very easy to access and well signposted) can avoid you surprises (tickets).

  • This fortress is close to the port area facilitating your viewing, but can see only your outside since it is not open to visitation to be still in use by the Navy of Martinique. A cultural attraction for the island of Martinique is French territory, so the flag that flutters in the mast at the Fort is the French.

  • The guided tour of the Fort St. Louis has disappointed us. To see 3 iguanas (that you can also see free Place of the savanna), enjoy a view at 360 ° on the city and listen to the story of the battle of rum, €8 per person it's too expensive. It borders on the scam. As more schedules of visits not had not been kept, this Saturday. We had to wait 1 hour more in a city deserted; the visit of 14 hours was cancelled at the last moment, without excuse and reason is apparent.
