Chateau Dubuc, La Trinite

3.7
#2 of 8 in Things to do in La Trinite
Admire the remains of Chateau Dubuc, a former sugar plantation with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Erected in 1721, the chateau fell into disrepair in 1815, having survived earthquakes, cyclones, and looting by British troops. Upon entry, you'll be given a self-guided audio tour (available in both English and French), allowing you to explore the 18th-century ruins at your own pace. Wonder through the spacious grounds, or follow the trail down to the beach to enjoy the cooling sea breeze. Some of the path can be strenuous and hilly, so wear good walking shoes and pack plenty of water and sunscreen.

  • But Castle closed except that they had forgotten to report at the beginning of the ride. The corner, leaving lovely hikes, is quite exceptional to do if you're in shape.. .to watch if one does not feel to them...

  • Visited the Château Dubuc after the full course of the Caravelle. Suffice to say that we were not really "cool" and yet we enjoyed. The 'Castle' is in fact an old sugar house completely in ruins but the audio guide and the plan do us perfectly imagine what looked like this area in the 18th century. The Caravelle peninsula is to be seen as a whole.

  • Great views of the remnants of chateau. Come early as it gets too hot there. Very nicely preserved remnants, easy-to-follow guide in multiple languages. Definitely worth a visit, if you have a car.  more »

  • This was a great tour and location. The audio guide adds a lot to the understanding of the place and time. Important in understanding the slave and sugar connection.
  • Well documented view into the plantation era in Martinique. Beautiful site, short but hilly hike in from the parking area.
  • Nice, but not much to see for five Euros.
  • Its very interesting
  • Great place to visit and see a little history of the island from the 1600s
