    A bit of history:
    The epic of the Dubuc family
    In 1657, Pierre Dubuc, originally from Dieppe in Normandy, France landed in Martinique to escape the musketeers of the King of France, following a duel. As a reward for his victories against the Indians, he took possession of Trinité and Tartane from 1671 and started growing sugar cane, coffee and tobacco. The Dubuc family prospered, and a few years later, Louis Dubuc, Pierre's grandson, took over the plantation named Caravelle, which became Château Dubuc.

    A place full of mystery and secrets
    The situation, importance and activities of Dubuc Castle make it a place with a dark past... Under its appearance of a large sugar plantation of the 18th century, one suspects certain acts of smuggling, trafficking of goods and slaves. There are certain signs that the clandestine practices that took place there are obvious: oversized warehouses compared to the sugar factory, chests, slave dungeons... Abandoned after the disastrous hurricane of 1766, Château Dubuc, located on the Caravelle nature reserve, protected and managed by the Martinique Regional Nature Park (PNRM), has been classified as a historic monument since 1992.
