A very interesting place to visit. Not in the least because of a very enthusiast guide. Knows a lot and how he managed to tell the story like it was his premiere after a lot of practise, I don't know. Absolutely worth a visit!

We saw this location whilst on an island tour. It's located by the side of a main road. A small site, which relates historically to the days of slavery and how they survived during a very hard time, in an inhospitable land.

This was a wonderful historical tour. Our guide showed us what life was like for slaves who had been given their own land near the plantations they had worked on. They were very resourceful and make the best with what they had to work with.

Yes it's off the 'beaten path' but well-worth the drive! Interesting glimpse at island life from years ago and you'll love the women who work there. Super friendly for sure!
