Saint-Claude

Saint-Claude
The Essential

Saint-Claude lives in the shadow of La Soufrière which rises to its northeast. In 1976, the town was gravely endangered by the caprices of "the old lady", and the population was evacuated. The village is an agreeable place to stay, and today draws many visitors who come not only to see the iconic volcano but also to enjoy the fresh climate, footpaths and unspoilt natural scenery of the Guadeloupe national park, which is administered from here.
