Old Pointe-à-Pitre

Old Pointe-à-Pitre is best seen on foot; of modest size, it lies between Boulevard Chanzy to the north and the sea to the south. Fabric shoppers should head to busy Rue Frébault, while there are foodstuffs aplenty at colourful St-Antoine market. In terms of heritage, note the colonial houses on Rue Nozières and Rue Peynet - the Schoelcher museum (n°24) is in a neo-Classical building - and the basilica of Sts Peter and Paul. Visit in the morning when busiest; vast tree-lined Place de la Victoire is ideal for a rest.
