Tombeau des Caraïbes

Located at 5 km north of Saint-Pierre, the Tombeau des Caraïbes (Tomb of the Carib Indian) owes its name to the fact that according to legend, the Carib Indian would have preferred to skip past this cliff and commit suicide rather than be enslaved by the French.

Nearby is the Mémorial du Tombeau des Caraïbes. The sculptor Chantal Hippocrate was inspired by this legend and sculpted 34 totems of the number of municipalities in Martinique and placed them around a rock painted in white. On these totems, poetic dedications were inscribed.
