La Savane des Esclaves, Trois-Ilets

4.5
#1 of 19 in Museums in Martinique
Experience a recreated "slave village" at La Savane des Esclaves. The settlement was created in 2000 by Gilbert Larose, a local who wanted to showcase the lives of his ancestors--plantation workers who fled to freedom and lived off the land. You'll step back in time as you explore this replica 19th-century village, where each structure is dedicated to a traditional local custom. In addition to traditional huts and artifacts, look for an old-fashioned Creole garden, which is tended without fertilizer or pesticide and is filled with herbs, medicinal plants, and fruit. Put La Savane des Esclaves and other Trois-Ilets attractions into our Trois-Ilets visit site , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • For the young and old... history to remember that although the it is on vacation in the Caribbean, it is a good idea also to arise an hour, just to never forget what crossed the people who welcome us in these lands!

  • This visit, made at the beginning of our stay enabled us to have a very good overview of the history of Martinique. To do!

  • Interesting tour about slavery in the Caribbean. A village of slaves is restored and a medicinal garden to explain the use of many local plants. Gilbert Larose is proud of its creation and this is reflected in the display of many newspaper clippings in some boxes which breaks a bit with the solemn atmosphere of the place.

  • You can see the houses that freed slaves built for themselves. There is a guided tour also but only in French, however you get a booklet with English translation. Apart from. The houses they also show you different tropical trees and herbs on a nice garden.
  • A cultural moment during the holidays. Better know or discover the painful history of slavery and the after. A short and informative tour!

  • Our great guide she managed to make us a nice informative time with a touch of humour, for the subject is that most horrible.

  • A museum open for 12 years, which is built gradually through its founder Mr. Larose, his entourage, his family. He welcomed the young guide including the narration of the texts of this museum us Captivate from the first words. The Museum is certainly now a bit small and grows. We feel the development projects: bravo for sharing this historic, so that this memory endures. Thank you.
