Le Carbet

Cruise ships often sail past the village of Le Carbet, near where Christopher Columbus briefly landed in 1502. Nearly three centuries later, the village became the temporary home of French artist Paul Gauguin, who spent six months here painting the volcanic landscapes, just a few years before his first trip to Tahiti. Today, Le Carbet has a small museum focused on Gauguin's time on Martinique.
