Chapp House

Architecture - Basse-Terre

With its dressed stone façade and ornate iron balconies, Maison Chapp is one of the most remarkable houses in the city of Basse-Terre. This two-story, volcanic stone building was built between 1782 and 1787 by two merchants. Located in the Saint-François quarter, a mercantile area that developed in the 18th century on the strength of the sugar and slave trades, it bears witness to the prosperity and quality of life enjoyed by the merchants of the time. The building is a protected historic monument.
