Église Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul

Nicknamed the 'Iron Cathedral' because of the iron girders it has supporting the traditional arches (a structural necessity to protect the building from earthquakes and hurricanes), the quaint Église Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul is one of the prettiest buildings in the city and well worth checking out.

Do & See

Pointe-a-Pitre is compact and easily navigable, offering nicely-preserved 19th-century architecture, vibrant marketplaces, excellent museums and the lively Place de la Victoire, the central square around which much of urban life revolves. The city also serves as a great home base for exploring the nearby natural beauty of the islands, with easy access to the imposing volcano La Grande Soufrière, the Guadeloupe National Park on Basse-Terre, and the other idyllic islands that make up Guadeloupe.
