La Métropole

Pointe-à-Pitre is the largest town of Guadeloupe. It is located on the eastern Guadeloupe island, named Grande-Terre. Guadeloupe island (aka the butterfly of Caribbeans) is indeed made of two main islands (wings), Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, divided by a string of sea. Despite that fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and cholera have been afflicting the citizens of this town for the last 300 years, Pointe-à-Pitre is still there with its delicious, albeit decadent French colonial style. West from the central Place de la Victoire (victory on slavery, 1794) you find the modern commercial part. East of it there are artist areas, red-light districts and the modern Museum on Slavery.

If you are a photographer, keep it down when you move to the red-light district even in day-light. “F*ck you” sounds cute with a French accent but faces look still aggressive … not an area to visit by night, with or without camera equipment.
