Forte de France, Martinique

Martinique is a dependent territory of France and retains both French and Caribbean culture. It is a rich, highly developed island with a six-lane highway, huge shopping malls, and some of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean. Fort-de-France is the island's capital city as well as its cultural and commercial hub. It is a cosmopolitan, fast paced city which is the largest on the island.

Just off the wharf is a city park called La Savane where there is a now-headless statue of Empress Josephine, first wife of Napoléon and perhaps the most famous person born on Martinique.

Just across the Rue de la Liberté from Josephine is the Bibliothèque Shoelcher, a stunningly beautiful building. It was built of iron in Paris by the architect of the Eiffel Tower and transported to Fort de France in 1890. It houses a collection of books donated by Victor Shoelcher.
