Very moving memorial

A very moving experience to walk among the motionless figures looking out to sea towards their long lost homeland. Very informative information boards.

Interesting memorial to see. You will find information on a table nearby. Easy parking. Very informative and just sad to think of what happened there.

In memory of Slavery
Mar 2019
This Memorial de l'Anse Caffard is about slavery. The monument was finished in 1998.

There are 15 statues, all are 8 feet. This monument was dedicated at the anniversary of the free slavery.

There was some bad news as well. On April 7, 1830, a slave ship sank near the Diamont. The slaves had shackles and all died.

This is why the statues looks sad.

Now everybody is free. Hurray!

Many tourists come here and wonder what it is.

There are information not too far from this monument.

I like that this Memorial faces the ocean.

A must see!

Impressive place

An amazing place of remembrance, showing how people over the centuries have been repeating the same mistakes without learning anything. An impressive place, forcing you to reflect.

Went to see the statues. They were erected to honor the slaves who died when their ship was caught in a storm. Much to contemplate.

It is better to see it on a guided Tour
Jan 2019 • Family
When we put the GPS to find the location of the site, it was not easy to find but at the end we reached it at dark. It has stunning ocean view, especially the view toward the famous Island.
There is not much to experience if you do not have a guide book to learn about its history.

Rather interesting memorial.....
Feb 2019 • Couples
There was a boat filled with slaves. There was a storm. The boat was wrecked on the sharp rocks at the shore and many lost their lives. Those slaves that lost their lives are solemnly facing their home port in Africa, from which they were stolen.

Historic site on a hill. Stairs down to get there. Very impactful message. Like most places on Martinique, you must be able to walk up and down hills.

Hauntingly cool
Feb 2019
Not much to say, sombering to think about the slave trade, and about the people who lost their lives during this ship wreck. Statues are cool, the views are great, we had a picnic here overlooking the water.
