We've visited some pretty cemeteries in the past and the Cimetiere de Morne-a-L'eau was kinda cool and different. Not as solemn as Arlington, not as creepy as New Orleans, not as dramatic as Punta Arenas. This one is built on a small hill and almost...More

This turned out to be a delightful and interesting stop. All the tombs are unique, and we could have spent much more time there investigating them all.

We took a two hour round trip to get here on a cloudy day. It is remarkable and unique in my experience. It is worth a visit although the area around the parking up the back street is a bit gritty. We just parked on...More

Make a stop at this design-y eternal resting place for it's black & white gravestones. Like being in a Lewis Carrol story or a checkerboard-themed park. Built on a hill overlooking a busy traffic circle. Take 30 minutes to stroll among the family graves, admiring...More

We stopped here at the end of our tour of Grand Terre. The graves above ground are different than I've seen before. A lot of the graves have pictures of the deceased on them

Not similar to famous places like pere lachaise or greenwood, but this cemetery is better than other above ground cemeteries, because it's on a hill. They should make a jigsaw puzzle of this, it wood be super hard. Enjoyed seeing the variations on the traditional...More

Our last stop on a tour of Guadeloupe, would be in the town of Morne-a-l’Eau. As we approached our destination, everyone was amazed to see a cemetery in the shape of an amphitheater with black and white checkered graves. Now this was an unusual cemetery...More
