Fort-de-France : Michelin's recommendations
Fort-de-France, administrative capital of Martinique, is a genuine harbour city. The panorama of St-Louis Fort jutting into the bays of the Flamands and Carénage is moreover best appreciated if you arrive by sea. While the Schoelcher Library and St-Louis Cathedral must not be missed, make sure you wander down the lanes of the historic centre lined in colourful buildings or take a spin round the market, soaking up the colours, flavours (buccaneer-style chicken) and delicious aromas.
