Place de la Victoire

Place de la Victoire is the beating heart of life in Pointe-a-Pitre, a picturesque park and plaza lined with palm trees, historic houses and sidewalk cafes on three sides and the clear waters of the harbour on the fourth. The plaza is also the centre of historical and cultural events, hosting festivals, concerts and other events.

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.
