Trip Planner: Caribbean / Martinique / Arrondissement of Le Marin / Trois-Ilets / La Savane des Esclaves
Experience a recreated "slave village" at La Savane des Esclaves. The settlement was created in 2000 by Gilbert Larose, a local who wanted to showcase the lives of his ancestors--plantation workers who fled to freedom and lived off the land. You'll step back in time as you explore this replica 19th-century village, where each structure is dedicated to a traditional local custom. In addition to traditional huts and artifacts, look for an old-fashioned Creole garden, which is tended without fertilizer or pesticide and is filled with herbs, medicinal plants, and fruit. Put La Savane des Esclaves and other Trois-Ilets attractions into our Trois-Ilets visit site , and watch your holiday take shape.

It is also the story of this people descended from multiple interbreedings, colonization and the abolition of slavery. But don't think the visit is sad, because the garden and medicinal plants are extraordinary as well as the reconstructed village of the Amerindians. Especially do not miss, it's definitely worth a visit.
Reconstructed slave plantation and a fortune to enter...would not recommend or return
