Morne Calvaire

Monument - Les Abymes

Morne Calvaire (meaning “Calvary Hill”) is reached by a Way of the Cross. This haven of peace is one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Guadeloupe, and it assumes its greatest importance on holy days, especially Good Friday. Acquired in 1855 by the bishopric at the request of Abbot Poujade, the parish priest of Les Abymes, it began as a simple oratory, but was soon extended to include a chapel in order to cope with the influx of pilgrims. The chapel, which is dedicated to Notre Dame de la Guadeloupe, was consecrated in 1858, and its architecture is a subtle combination of Romanesque and Gothic features. A Way of the Cross has been created nearby.
