La Savane des Esclaves
Ranked #1 of 34 things to do in Trois-Ilets
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 29, 2014

This heritage village features the life and customs of slaves who had escaped and lived in the swamps in Martinique. It was extremely interesting, factual and non judgemental. There are buildings to visit to gain an understanding of how the people lived. The guide explained that all the plants, trees and bushes in the village had a use for either eating, infusion or for medicine. There were an awful lot of plants etc and the guide took us through every single in great detail. The tour was conducted in French but there was an English guide to the village available to borrow free of charge.
This village is really worth visiting whilst you are in Martinique.

Many many many years of history explain clearly as from the arriving of the arawaks,you'll also see the exact replica of the house of Mr. MADOUZE. He build a small house with the roof made of sugar-cane leaves where he live with his wife and 5 children in 1940.Realy need to go there 7€/pax.

a touch from the martinique humanity. Beside sea and nature, culture and history is a must to complete the visit to one of the most beautiful islands ever seen.

This was a fascinating insight into the life of slaves and escaped slaves. the guide was great but unfortuantely only spoke french. there was a very helpful written english guide but with such a big group of visitors we would have preferred to be able to wonder around more autonomously. the facilitaties are very basic - take a drink with you.

Great to learn about the history of the island and how the original slaves were treated in such a bad way. Definitely worth visiting!
