Félix Eboué Square

Landscape - Capesterre de Marie-Galante

A traditional meeting and gathering place, this broad, tree-lined square is bordered by Sainte-Anne Church and the Town Hall, which features a bust of Félix Eboué, Governor of Guadeloupe from 1936 to 1938. Eboué left Guadeloupe for Chad at the end of his term, when World War II broke out. At his urging, this region was the first to rally to the “Free French” movement under General De Gaulle. Félix Eboué died in 1944 in Cairo, and is buried in Paris at the Panthéon, next to renowned abolitionist Victor Schœlcher.
