Château Murat

Interesting
Housing a small documentation centre on the history of Marie-Galante, Château Murat is a Classical-style building standing on high ground, a best-guess reconstruction of the original sugar estate residence. It was built in the 1960s as a luxury hotel, but the project was never seen through to completion. Sugar growing ceased in the late 19C. Don't miss the old livestock-powered mill, the warehouses, sugar refinery chimney, windmill (1814) and small garden of aromatic and medicinal plants.
