Le Carbet : visit, good addresses and practical information


Le Carbet : visit, good addresses and practical information

Temps de lecture : 2 minutes

Located about 17 kilometers from the capital Fort-de-France, and 16 kilometers from Saint-Joseph, the Carbet refers to a type of dwelling belonging to the Caribbean natives, resembling large huts. Like the other towns of Martinique, this commune also has a particular history. It is here that Christopher Columbus is said to have landed in 1502, during his last voyage.

The development of the town began in the second half of the 17th century, but in 1902 the population of the town moved, for the most part, to the South, following the volcanic eruption of Mount Pelee. Le Carbet is an exceptional town that has experienced a notable development, thanks to the cultivation of cane and cocoa, which make its prosperity.
