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.

  • Following a report seen in metropolitan France on France O, we promised to visit Mr. Larose and discover its cultural heritage and the passion of his ancestors, that leads to really made us share with a lot of emotion. Go to the 3 islets and especially stop you to visit "the Savannah of the slaves"

  • A great way to learn the history of Martinique from the Arawaks to contemporary times, as well as the local flora.
  • Full of history of our ancestors. A must see in Martinique .
  • 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.
  • Strong open-air museum interesting with boxes of slaves and former slaves. Very educational guides (human and paper). Stupid a little bit spoiled for us by a persistent rain.

  • A nice discovery in the history of Martinique. The reconstitution of slave boxes allows you to better understand the conditions of life of the time as well as different cultures on the island that preceded the cane at sucre(tabac, coton, café, cacao,...) The tour is of quality.
