A Martinique Legend at La Pagerie
One of Martinique’s most famous residents was Josephine de Beauharnais, the love of Napoléon I and one-time Empress of France. Take a trip to her childhood home in Les Trois-Îlets to explore all facets of her past—troves of love letters to and from Napoléon, the impressive plans for her rose gardens at Château de Malmaison, a doctored marriage certificate that hid her true age from her betrothed, and more. Now an open-air museum-facing the Bay of Fort-de-France, La Pagerie hosts multilingual tours through the picturesque grounds.
