Located on Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe's economic capital is a good place to end a trip; visitors can stock up on colourful goods to be found in the town's various markets. Although it has a pleasant historic centre with colonial houses (alas not very well presented), animated by fishermen docking at La Darse, Pointe-à-Pitre remains a town usually just passed through, closing down at dusk (to the benefit of its marina and the outlying settlement of Le Gosier). The town is, however, justifiably proud of the ACTe memorial, which was opened in 2015.
