Top 5 Historic Remains
Fidelin pottery, Terre-de-Bas
The ruins of the Fidelin pottery can be found on the banks of the cove that bears the same name. There, you will stroll through a majestic setting! The old stones cohabit with dry vegetation that take you to age-old times. On the ground, terracotta shards still litter the floor, like rust-proof witnesses of the former manufacture
Roussel Trianon, Marie-Galante
You just cannot bypass this majestic Mansion, on the road from Saint-Louis to Grand-Bourg in Marie-Galante. In a huge field, the remains of the master's house and the sugar mill give an idea of the size of a former plantation estate. The undamaged red brick stables at sunset give the place a magical feel.
Former prison, Petit-Canal
Right next to the very impressive slave steps, nestled in the vegetation, is the former jail of Petit-Canal. If it is considered a must-see today, it is because a banyon fig tree has invaded the place. As an eminently strong symbol of freedom that prevails over imprisonment, anyone who visits this place will testify to the emotion it exudes!
The cotton plantation, la Desirade
The further you move towards the tip overlooking the Atlantic, the drier the plants and harder the winds. This is where the old cotton mill of La Desirade is located! In this weatherbitten spot, the walls of the cotton mill have survived the passage of time and bear witness to a time when an economic activity was held there.
Parcs des Roches Gravées, Trois-Rivières
The islands of Guadeloupe were inhabited by Amerindians before the arrival of Europeans. Colonisation nearly wiped out testimonies of the native Indians... Almost! Because in the Guadeloupean vocabulary, some expressions, names of places, among others, testify to the importance of this past in what the Islands of Guadeloupe are today. In Trois Rivières, the Parc des Roches Gravées preserves the most beautiful testimony of the Amerindians, namely the petroglyphs.
