Gardel Refinery

A last survivor from Grande-Terre's golden age of sugar production from the late 19C to the 1950s, the refinery allows visitors to better understand the sugar manufacturing process, from its raw cane state to the finished product ready for export. A fascinating experience, guided by a professional who clearly knows his subject.
