Today a picturesque fishing village sprinkled with traditional colourful houses, Christopher Columbus was said to have moored here in 1502. Paul Gauguin also stayed here in 1887 and a small museum is devoted to the artist. Don't miss rue Perrinon and its colourful houses or St-Jacques Church (1776) and its handsome Baroque facade. South of the town (by N2), in the Coin district, you can admire well-preserved characteristic painted wooden Creole huts.
