  • If you have a little time, you can visit this place that will allow you to have a wonderful view over the Bay and the city of Fort de France. Take his ticket at the counter of the tourist office on the Savannah to 200 meters square. From there you go accompanied with an official guide, do not forget that it is still military in the Fort, so organized tour, a pleasant visit, you can admire the iguanas and take pictures of the area... We appreciated this time...

  • We had the chance to visit the fort St. Louis during the European days of heritage... and this for free. This fort is very impressive, the people who comment on the visit are passionate and transmit fully their knowledge and their passion. One enters the tunnels that allow to climb all of the fort. Cavalier great tip or other flat shapes the view is magnificent on the city and the sea. This visit allows to approach the colonies of iguanas who elected home in the walls of the fort.
