Visit the Anse Cafard Slave Memorial

The Anse Cafard Memorial sits up on a hill in Martinique's southwest, and a visit rewards intrepid travelers with panoramic views and a solemn glimpse into Martinique's past. The 20 statues here memorialize an 1830 incident where a slave ship crashed into Diamond Rock Mountain, killing many of the crew and the slaves shackled in the cargo areas. The experience here is tremendously moving, and best experienced as part of an outdoor excursion across the island.
