Marigot: restoration and enhancement of Fort Louis


An annual tri-framework partnership agreement between the Collectivity and the Ministry of Culture relating to the restoration and enhancement of Fort Louis was recently validated by the Executive Council. Precisely, this partnership is made with the Department of Cultural Affairs of Guadeloupe for historical monuments, which awarded a subsidy of 215.700 euros on July 5 for phase 1 of restoration and enhancement. Offering a magnificent view of the bay, the fort - built in 1789 by the population of the village of Marigot, on the initiative of Jean Sébastien de Durat, governor of the Northern Islands for the King of France - is a must-see for tourists .
