Cimetière Marin (Le)

Guided tour at Saint-paul

  • During this visit, the guide will recount the legend of the pirate La Buse, the poems of Leconte Delisle and other unusual stories. Between the Chaussée Royale and the Baie du Meilleure Ancrage, the Sailors' Cemetery at Saint-Paul fascinates all visitors.

    With its lanes lined with coconut trees and blooming frangipani trees, its burial sites perpetuate the memory of the ""z’endormis"" (sleepers). While walking from stones to tombs, to crosses and edifices, visitors learn that a family's wealth is also transmitted into the afterlife.
    Guided visit held every Friday by a local guide ("Guide péi") and for at least 4 persons.
    Please call Dominick for other days.
