Saint-Pierre Travel guide
Saint-Pierre : Michelin's recommendations
Saint-Pierre is no longer the influential 30 000-strong town it used to be, since the fateful eruption of Mount Pelée on 8 May 1902. But Saint-Pierre, a pretty town of 5 000 inhabitants, has risen from its ashes thanks to the tenacity of the locals. It remains the site of many testimonies to its past, such as the ruins of an ancient theatre and the wrecks that lie at the bottom of its harbour. Visit the Discovery Centre of the Science of the Planet and the Depaz Distillery of this delightful, lively village.
