Ft. St. Louis, Fort-de-France

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.

  • We were on a cruise and had some time to spare.. so go to the tourist info centre on victor hugo st, about 5 min walk, you must book in on a tour to visit the fort.. it’s not made clear at the fort...  more »
  • This was an informative couple of hours. Rain squalls did not deter from the good time we had. Learned a lot. Grounds are well kept. Lots of iguanas roaming mourn. Well worth the visit.  more »

  • Lovely Cathedral. Quite a unique structure. Well worth visiting. Nice to sit and contemplate. In a nice area. Park with cafes nearby. Check it out on Wikipedia
  • It's a cathedral. But its interesting to go in for a second and observe how different its feeling and atmosphere is from the european ones even though it has the same structure and similar artwork.
