We were going to take the ferry to the beach, but a steady rain made us change our plans to go downtown. We enjoyed the town, but it was a bit dirty. The Cathedral was nice and worth a visit. We always visit the local...More

Modern style Cathedral located in the heart of the town well worth a visit. Striking external architecture with a gothic edge. Interior standard lay out but main feature is some beautiful stain glass windows. Opposite is a pleasant square with ornate buildings, fountain and greenery.

My wife and I stopped into the cathedral while visiting Fort-de-France during a cruise. There really isn’t much to the town and is not really geared towards tourists. Nevertheless, we came across the cathedral and decided to check it out. While the exterior is somewhat...More

A lovely church about two blocks from the port. The spire can be seen from everywhere in the downtown area, which makes it an excellent landmark. The stained glass is very pretty, and it's a nice quiet place to sit and relax during your visit...More

We never got to see this treasure when we were in FDF as it was always closed. There was no indication f visiting hour - very disappointing.

The spire can be seen from a distance. There are side door entrances as well as main door. Inside it has a classic metal frame structure like a huge barn. However the stain glass is good as are the side altar areas.

This St Louis Cathedral is certainly different from the other buildings and with its tall spire can be seen from all across the capital, Fort de France. Built at the end of the nineteenth century in a Romanesque Revivalist style, and opened in 1895, it...More

Best for cruise travelers seeking something to do in Fort de France. There are no special features, beyond the iron construction. A visit takes maybe 15 minutes. Has some good stained glass windows.

There is something special to be inside this very beautiful cathedral. It is open for peace and pryers in the middle of the hot and busy streets of Fort-de-France.

The outside is quite unusual both on colour and structure. Inside there is some nice stained glass. The large glass office block on the opposite side of the square gives an unusual reflction photo of the church facade.
