  • A beautiful building overlooking the Bay of Terre de Haut, one of the most beautiful bays in the world. I saw a 15-part iguanas thanks to the sharp eye of a guard of the Fort. The guide told us the story of the Fort for 40 minutes with lots of funny anecdotes punctuated by "my darlings", and "my doudous"... Great

  • After this grandiose arrival, we began our discovery of Terre de Haut by Fort Napoleon. Not to be missed, if only for the exceptional view it reserves on the archipelago of the Saintes and the surrounding islands! The museum traces the history of Franco-English conflicts. On the way to the round, you will cross many iguanas! The entrance fee is €3.5. You have to play!

  • Stunning view from Fort Napoleon, well worth the walk up the hill OCH for the lazy ones, just rent an electric bike.
  • Short but steep walk up to the fort with amazing views on the way and at the top. All the the signs are in French, so good luck understanding anything if you speak English.
