With the opening of the ACTe memorial in 2015, Point-à-Pitre has had a new lease of life. This impressive building recalls the historical façades around Place de la Victoire, which have at last been renovated. Laid out in a grid pattern, the streets in the historic centre are lined with attractive houses with balconies, many of which have been restored to their former glory. However, although the island's economic capital is pleasantly bustling during the morning market, it tends to wind down at dusk, with the exception of the marina and its main square on the first weekend of the month.
