Ft. St. Louis, Fort-de-France
(2.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Fort-de-France travel itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Ft. St. Louis and other attractions in Fort-de-France.
