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.

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.

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.

Apart from what you see on the pictures there is not much else to see. I believe there is a short walk possible. The statues itself are quite impressive so if you are in the are stop by. You don’t need more than 10 minutes

Memorial to a terrible accident that occurred off the course of Martinique in 1830, which killed enslaved people. Such a moving experience.
