The city of Pointe-à-Pitre is the ideal starting point to discover Guadeloupe

Located on Grande-Terre, at the confluence with Basse-Terre.

Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, it offers many tourist spots such as the ACTe Memorial or the Schoelcher Museum. Certified as a city of art and history in 2002, this city is worth taking a look at!

5 reasons to go to Pointe-à-Pitre

pointe-a-pitre-memorial-acte

Visit the ACTe Memorial

You can't stay in Pointe-à-Pitre without swinging by the ACTe Memorial. Dedicated to the history of slavery and the slave trade of the Guadeloupeans, the inhabitants of the Caribbean and all humanity, this building with unique architecture is a fascinating place combining the past, present and future through numerous exhibitions. A must-see!

pointe-a-pitre-marche-darse

Linger over the Darse market

Very picturesque, the Darse market is dedicated to the sale of fruits and vegetables, spices of all kinds and fresh fish caught by local fishermen. At 6 am, merchants hail passersby to draw their attention and talk about how great their products are. It is a lively and colorful place that will seduce small and big gourmands!

pointe-a-pitre-carnaval

Enjoy the carnival

Deeply rooted in Creole culture, the carnival is a key moment of the year for all Guadeloupeans. For two months, from Epiphany (in January) to Ash Wednesday (in February or March), the island lives to the rhythm of the parades. Pointe-à-Pitre and other towns vibrate to the frenzied rhythms of the music and dance steps that animate the tarmac!

pointe-a-pitre-acras-specialite

Enjoy Creole specialties

The art of cooking is an institution in Pointe-à-Pitre as in all of Guadeloupe! Creole gastronomy is a mixture of flavors from Africa, India and mainland France, placing great emphasis on spices and hot peppers. The typical dishes are colorful and tasty: cod fritters, bebele, creole pudding, ouassou... can be tasted without restraint!

pointe-a-pitre-maison-coloniale

Encounter history at the Schoelcher Museum

Visiting the Schoelcher Museum is a unique opportunity to discover who Victor Schoelcher was, a distinguished figure who worked for the abolition of slavery. Lovers of beautiful stones will appreciate by the way to be able to admire one of the most beautiful colonial houses that still exist in Pointe-à-Pitre. Inside, porcelains, personal objects of the extraordinary man and many works of art await the visitors.
