Resorts and attractions of Martinique
There are many rivers in Martinique, but they are all small in size, although there are waterfalls in the northern part of the island. In the past, the island was covered with dense tropical forests. Now they are preserved only in some places on the slopes of the mountains. The fauna of Martinique is poor and is represented mainly by birds and small rodents, as well as snakes, which, according to local legends, were brought to the island during the time of slavery by planters to expel runaway Negro slaves from the forests. The sea around Martinique is rich in fish, crustaceans and mollusks.
Martinique is the birthplace of Josephine Beauharnais, Empress of France, Napoleon’s first wife. In the house where she spent her childhood, her museum is currently operating.
For some time the artist Gauguin lived in Martinique. Now there is a museum. There are no originals in the museum.
The island was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1502 during the 4th expedition.
Martinique has the same flag and coat of arms – a white cross with four snakes.
