  • It is a nice little creole village and there are a few typical houses and this cemetery is really beautiful with a lot flowers planted by family members. Not creepy but simply beautiful.  more »
  • My wife and I spent a while in this place. It was very moving to think of the lives lived ( some for not so long). The setting was tranquil and all the flowers added to its special appearance.  more »
  • Très beau cimetière, fleuri et baroque dans l'agencement des innombrables croix, avec derrière lui une vue superbe sur le piton d'Enchaing et les montagnes environnantes par temps dégagé. Ne craignez pas trop les "bibs" à l'entrée (et un peu partout dans le village), ces araignées sont parfois grosses mais inoffensives.
  • Même si c'est un cimetière, il faut y aller car il y a une vue magnifique sur le piton d'enchaing et sur le cirque de Salazie. Très beau point de vue.
