As others have said, very moving and disturbing. A beautiful spot, a tragic event. It is worth the drive, but be careful--the drive is scary.

Very annoyingly, three teenager boys climbed on the statutes (shoulders or head) and the mom/girlfriends/sisters took pictures. Very annoying and not funny. Otherwise, it is interesting and special memorial -a fine memorial overlooking the bay of the Diamant beach and the Diamant rock.

I only got to visit for a short while, just before sunset, but it was nice nevertheless. This was created in memory of several slaves who died just off the nearby coast nearly 200 years before. In the distance, is an amazing view of some...More

This is an important historical place of Martinique where in the past island people where scolding like slaves. View is amazing. If you are close to Leicester Diamanté you should go.
