Cruising to Fort-de-France, Martinique
Martinique, part of the Lesser Antilles, is a mountainous Caribbean island. It is a French overseas territory whose culture is a unique blend of French and West Indian elements. Fort-de-France, the country’s main town, has steep slopes, tiny alleys, and La Savane, a garden ringed by stores and cafes. A statue of Joséphine de Beauharnais, Napoleon Bonaparte’s first wife, is in the park.
