Marigot: a bustling French capital

exploration

The sub-prefecture of the island, Marigot has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere.

The island's French capital, Marigot, is host to a large outdoor market, where the excitement and hospitality of its inhabitants are on display every morning. Located on the harbour, it is here that locals pick up their seasonal produce, fresh fish, and meat.

You'll also find a host of crafts: paintings, sculptures, clothing, and jewellery decorated with Larimers, the rare pale blue stones of Dominican origin that are the pride of the Caribbean. Close by is Fort Saint Louis, the 18th-century building that dominates the city and offers a superb view over the bay. South of the city, Marina Port La Royale and its luxury boutiques attract a wealthy clientele.
