This is a quick stop but another interesting piece in the sordid history of slavery in Martinique. We drove the steep and winding road from Trois-Ilets to reach the memorial (then had a delicious dinner 3 minutes up the street at La Voile Blanche).

Our landlord at the hotel convinced us to go there. I am glad the we did! The big sculptures and the sad stories behind them make you think. At the same time we could enjoy the great view of the sea

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.

Made us step back and realize how badly slaves were treated during that time. The hardships they went through was so wrong.
