With the opening of the ACTe memorial in 2015, Point-à-Pitre has taken on a new lease of life. This impressive building recalls the historic façades around Place de la Victoire, which have at last been restored. Laid out in a grid pattern, the streets in the historic centre are lined with attractive houses with balconies, many of which have been renovated. However, although the island's economic capital has a pleasantly lively atmosphere during the morning market, it tends to close down at dusk, with the exception of the marina.
