Living The Dream

Fort Napoleon

15 January 2017
Terre d’en Haut is small enough that you can get about on foot and we did quite a lot of walking and hiking. One such trip took us to Fort Napoleon, built in 1867, which stands on a hill overlooking the whole of the harbour. The fort has been very well restored and is now a museum and art gallery. Part of the museum is devoted to the famous battle of the Saintes, when England’s Admiral Rodney demolished the French fleet under the command of De Grasse in 1782. The surrounding gardens are well maintained and a walk around them gives commanding views across to Guadeloupe and Dominica.

CRUISERS NOTES
Only open until midday. Get there early to avoid the crowds when the ferry arrives.
