Sites and heritage of Martinique

Dive into Martinique’s history by discovering its heritage preserved over the centuries… The many ruins and vestiges of ancient plantations, mills, sugar mills will mark out your route. In each commune, you will find a church to visit. Often original, with an architecture that blends the ancient and the ultra-modern, most Martinican churches were rebuilt after fires and natural disasters. Among the oldest to see: that of Macouba (1667) with its boat hull frame, that of Marin (1669) and that of Case-Pilote (1640).
Another curiosity: on the road to Balata, the church of the Sacré-Cœur, a miniature replica of the Parisian basilica of Montmartre.

As you travel, you can visit some of the estates of yesteryear and distilleries, among them the iconic Habitation Clément. In Fort-de-France, watch the forts, witnesses of the island’s military past. Must-sees in the capital city: Fort Saint-Louis Schoelcher Library and Cathedral Saint-Louis !
