Château Murat

Fodor's Review

A mile from town, the Château Murat is a 19th-century sugar plantation and rum distillery housing exhibits on the history of rum making and sugarcane production that goes back three centuries. This former habitation was once the grandest sugar plantation in Guadeloupe. Various hurricanes left the chateau in ruins, with just remnants of the kitchen, etc., still standing. From the rubble rose the ecomuseum which celebrates island crafts, and there is a garden for medicinal local plants.
