Fort-de-France, between nature and Creole culture

Located on the west coast, Fort-de-France is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island of Martinique

A jewel of Creole culture, the city is home to several remarkable monuments and museums, exuberant gardens, picturesque neighbourhoods and lively markets.

Fort-de-France is nestled in a natural setting. The dreamy beaches of the Caribbean Sea await you just a few metres from the city centre, while the valleys, cirques and volcanic peaks covered in lush jungle welcome hiking enthusiasts.

You can easily get to Fort-de-France by taking a flight with a stopover from Lyon, and enjoy an unforgettable stay under the Caribbean sun.

1

Visit Saint Louis Cathedral

Built in 1891 in a neo-Gothic and Romanesque-Byzantine style, the Saint-Louis Cathedral in Fort-de-France is surprisingly bold architecturally. The building is built entirely around a metal frame, in order to resist earthquakes. The interior is decorated with floral motifs and nineteen stained glass windows.
 
2

Stroll through the Creole markets

The Creole culture, mixed and generous, is particularly present in the markets of Fort-de-France. The spice market, also known as the large covered market, welcomes you all year round in the shade of a large hall. As you stroll through the stalls, you will be intoxicated by the colours and scents, and you will discover the local produce, gastronomy and crafts of Martinique. 
3

Pace up and down the ramparts of the Fort Saint-Louis

Built in the 17th century, this powerful fortress protects Fort-de-France and the island of Martinique from attacks by pirates or enemy nations. The Fort Saint-Louis still houses military installations. It is open to guided tours, and you can discover the courtyards, towers, bastions and ramparts of this fort with its Vauban-inspired architecture.
4

Lounge by the water

The city of Fort-de-France is bathed by the Caribbean Sea. You can easily take a break from the hustle and bustle for a few hours of relaxation with your feet in the water. You can go to La Savane Park and Le Malecon, lay your towel on the sand of La Française beach, or board a sailing boat or catamaran for a trip out to sea.
5

Revitalise in the Balata garden

Only a few minutes from the centre of Fort-de-France, the Balata garden offers you a real tropical garden of Eden. More than 3000 species of plants flourish around an authentic Creole house. You can walk 15 metres above the ground on suspension bridges, or stroll in the shade of palm trees or bamboos.
