Martinique, French Caribbean

Visite de St Pierre

The visit of Saint Pierre and its ruins is certainly a thing to do during a stay in Martinique. The best is to learn beforehand to better understand the magnitude of this cataclysm that killed nearly 30,000 in a few seconds and scratched the map one of the most beautiful cities in the Caribbean. The Franck Perret Museum is a good address. The place still gains solemnity when the volcano is discovered to dominate the bay of its imposing and silent presence.
