Typical houses

Architecture - Pointe-à-Pitre

Pointe-à-Pitre still contains a number of well-preserved traditional houses, including two-story wooden dwellings with their characteristic roof dormers bringing light and ventilation into the garrets; many have galleries with ironwork balconies and frieze decoration. Most of the houses contain a shop on the stone-walled first floor, with service quarters looking onto the courtyard. There are some fine examples of these houses in Place de la Victoire, such as the Maison Mathé, and you can also see many other typical dwellings on rue Peynier, rue Bébian, rue de la République, rue Achille-René Boisneuf, and other streets.
