Gerville-Réache Secondary School

Architecture - Basse-Terre

In 1651, Governor Charles Houël entrusted the administration of the parish to the Carmelites. Until the Revolution, their convent was housed here, in the now Lycée Gerville-Réache, a secondary school. In 1819, a military hospital was built on the site. The “horseshoe” arrangement of the buildings and the use of masonry and cast iron are characteristic of the buildings of the time. Converted to a secondary school in 1950, Gerville Réache, a general and technological secondary school with 1,448 students, bears the name of Guadeloupe politician Gaston Gerville-Réache (1854-1908), a member of parliament who represented Guadeloupe from 1881 to 1906.
