Interesting
Situated on the shipping route back from the Indies, Sainte-Marie island was a hideout for pirates, as the cemetery to the south of the capital Ambodifotatra testifies (access via a dike). Also of interest are the old fort built by the French East India Company (panorama) and the oldest Catholic church in Madagascar (c 1850).
