La Possession

La Possession
The Essential
You can reach La Possession, west of the capital, via the N 1 or Corniche: the road is quite a feat of technology, snaking between the sea and cliffs. Historically, this is where French ships landed in the mid-17C to take possession of the island. Today it is essentially a residential town.
