St.-Pierre

Martinique's former capital was a cultural hub of the Caribbean. St.-Pierre was the site of the original French settlement on the island, and it was long considered the Paris of the West Indies until 1902, when the eruption of Mt. Pelée devastated the city and left behind haunting ruins like a Caribbean Pompeii. Today, a small community has resettled here, and the remains of many historic buildings are protected as archaeological sites.
