Travel to Martinique

  • Flag
Martinique is a part of France located in the tropics. The islanders follow the dictates of Parisian fashion, eat baguettes and croissants and pay with Franks. However, zouk music playing on the equipment recordings, bars and nightclubs reminds us that its inhabitants have their own culture, steeped firmly in the West Indian Creole traditions. The capital, Fort-de-France, a modern and elegant city of one hundred thousand inhabitants, is the largest of the French Antilles. Much of the island is undeveloped, and most important cities could be confused with modern neighborhoods. However, almost one third is occupied by forests, and many areas are intended for the cultivation of pineapples, bananas and sugar cane. It is still possible to find some fishing villages and secluded beaches as well as many trails through the mountains.

The island of Martinique (French: Martinique) is a French overseas department located north of Santa Lucia in the Caribbean Sea (as such, is an outermost region of the European Union). It was named after Christopher Columbus, who discovered it in 1502. His name was Jouanacaëra-Matinino and was inhabited by the caribes.2 This island belongs to the Lesser Antilles and calls within it belongs to the group calls the Windward Islands. It belongs to France since 1635. It is mountainous and volcanic. Christopher Columbus was the first European explorer to reach the island on June 15, 1502 but, except on three occasions on which it was briefly occupied by other nations, the island remained under French rule since its colonization in the year 1635. Martinique is dominated by Mount Pelee volcano, 1397 meters, which erupted on May 8, 1902 during the so-called Cataclysm of Martinique, completely destroying Saint Pierre, the first European settlement on the island, killing over 30,000 people. The population has recovered and is now the island is one of the most populated in the region. Rose Marie Josèphe Tascher of Pagerie, known as Josephine de Beauharnais, who married his second wife, Napoleon Bonaparte, was born in Martinique.
