Former Prison

Monument - Goyave

On Rue Edouard Zora street, a few vestiges of the oldest standing building are all that remain of the former Goyave prison, which was built by the colonial government in 1849 on land from the Aiguille plantation. The 1851 earthquake partially destroyed the facility. For a few years after that, it housed convicts from the Cabrit islet jail (in Saintes), who were conscripted to help build the colonial road. The building is now completely vacant.
