A tremendous historic monument commemorating a powerful and remarkable moment in history. Not much to do, but a great thing to see.

Heros de Vertieres is a historic square, quite far from the centre and the surrounding area is in a really bad shape - poor, neglected, might be dangerous after dark.

A must see for tourists to this historic site. This historic victory was a victory for the enslaved of Haiti and stands as a highly significant marker on the way to a hope for reality of liberty and equal rights for all people everywhere.

The area and the monument were clean and well maintained. Nice place to take a photo with cultural/historical significance

A large bronze statue that represents the heros of the liberation of Haïti. Located on a busy road, not much to visit around. Pretty dirty.

A good stop if you're passing by but I wouldn't make it a destination by itself. Although it seems to be a good way to learn a little bit of history of Haiti, there's not much on-site. It's more of a teaser - makes you...More

My family and I were in the car driving along on our way to a village called Noailles when we stumbled upon the monument depicting the Battle of Vertieres. This was the last major battle (November 1803) of the war for Haitian independence between the...More
