From Bouillante to Basse-Terre

On our today's tour from Bouillante (Côte sous le vent = Windward Coast), we travelled along the winding road on the west coast of Guadeloupe, towards the south until Basse-Terre.

Along the road we found again and again colorful graffities.

Located at the foot of Sufriere (the 1467m high active Volcano), which hides his mountain peak the most time of the year in the clouds, Basse-Terre is a colorful city with a lot of things who wait to be discovered.

In Basse-Terre, the famous Rum is manufactured at the destillery Bologne (Rum de Bologne) which was foundated in the 17th century. Today, the visitor can see the hole process from the sugar cane cultivation until the final product, the rum.

In 1650, in the south of the city of Basse-Terre was build the Fort Louis Delgre, with its impressive walls which braves the elements until today.

 In the evening we enjoyed the beautiful and spectacular sunset.
