Trip Planner: Caribbean / Martinique / Arrondissement of Le Marin / Trois-Ilets / La Savane des Esclaves
Experience a recreated "slave village" at La Savane des Esclaves. The settlement was created in 2000 by Gilbert Larose, a local who wanted to showcase the lives of his ancestors--plantation workers who fled to freedom and lived off the land. You'll step back in time as you explore this replica 19th-century village, where each structure is dedicated to a traditional local custom. In addition to traditional huts and artifacts, look for an old-fashioned Creole garden, which is tended without fertilizer or pesticide and is filled with herbs, medicinal plants, and fruit. Put La Savane des Esclaves and other Trois-Ilets attractions into our Trois-Ilets visit site, and watch your holiday take shape.

We met the creator of the museum. He told his story of living in the huts with his parents. People often visit the large and beautiful habitations, but without these slaves, there would be no plantation. His choice to educate the generations with this display was incredible. He is very passionate and shared his enthusiasm.
We totally recommend this place. La Savane des Esclaves is very beautiful and well maintained place. It combines slavery museum with tropical garden and village of Carib Indians and houses used after abolition of slavery. You will gain a lot of information and you will be amazed by beautiful nature. Don't forget to get a drink from fresh fruits. Check the opening hours and enjoy the beautiful road here as well.
