Basse-Terre Heritage Centre

Interesting
Since 1995, Basse-Terre has been designated a "Ville d'art et d'histoire". Located in a superb early 19C mansion, the Maison du Patrimoine (heritage centre) puts on various cultural events ranging from conferences to temporary exhibitions (on architecture, art, history etc), free of charge and open to all. It also organises three interesting tours of the neigbourhoods of Basse-Terre, under the aegis of two inspiring guide-lecturers.
