Champ de Mars, Port-au-Prince

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Walk around at Champ de Mars, Port-au-Prince's major park and hub of political power.

Peruse the park's several monuments to discover the history of Haiti: the ruins of the national palace, a former army barracks, and statues of Haiti's founding fathers (Pétion, Louverture, Dessalines, Christophe, and Capois).
