La Savane des Esclaves, Trois-Ilets
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.

Très bel espace. La guide nous raconte bien la vie des Esclaves. A visiter. Nous le recommandons . Plantes médicinales variées more »Very nice space. The guide tells us the life of the slaves. To visit. We recommend it. Various medicinal plants
Great time with a local guide and museum made by local. Very impressive and enough for family, especially children.
A short drive from the tourist town and you get to this really nice hill side expo. The path winds through the hill and on display on almost 1:1 scale are recreations of dwellings during Martiniques slave era and to the aboriginal people's before the colonials arrived. It is a guided tour and they offer a lot of information about life, culture, medicine and plant life. An important stop to understand Martiniques past.
