Discover The historic Pigeon Island national park St Lucia

A peninsula bordered by the Atlantic and the Caribbean, Pigeon Island is listed as a Historic National Park because it contains the remains of Fort Rodney where some of the fighting between the French and the British took place. From the top of the 18th century building, you can admire a beautiful panorama of the island and, when the weather is nice, of Martinique. In May, the place resembles a kind of 'Caribbean Woodstock', hosting as it does the international jazz festival.
