La Savane, Fort-de-France

3.0
#2 of 6 in Parks in Arrondissement of Fort-de-France
A common meeting place among locals, La Savane, once known as the Garden of the King, dates back to the 19th Century. The 12.5 acre (5.05 ha) park offers shade, tall trees, park benches, and walkways. Head to the center of the park to find the decapitated statue of Josephine de Beauharnais, Napoleon's first wife and Empress of France. She convinced her husband to reinstate slavery in the area following the revolution that abolished it. In her left hand she holds a locket featuring a portrait of Napoleon.

    The city center is not much interesting apart from the square and a few historical monuments that are there

    The interest is more historical and Visual, otherwise it is a vast grassy square overlooking the Fort and the sea. The animation is there, we there were for the color run foyal!

    Great area of the town, boulevard Chevalier is a beautiful area which combines the old spirit of the island with the contemporary one.
