Location of the Monastery

Map of the West Indies




The West Indies hug the East side of the Caribbean Sea located in Central America. The abbreviation for West Indies is W.I. Martinique is near the centre of the West Indies as shown on this map :

The city of Schoelcher where the monastery is located, is north of Fort-de-France. When you leave the airport, take the motorway towards Fort-de-France. When you get to the Fort-de-France bypass, you will bypass Fort-de-France to go towards Schoelcher.






The city of Schoelcher




When you arrive at the Schoelcher town centre, you exit the bypass after going over a bridge, going in the direction of the “Rectorat”. Follow the signs for the “Rectorat” up a very steep road. Go past the “Rectorat” on the left and you will arrive at a T junction. Turn right and continue on the same road until you come to the monastery which is indicated by a sign on the right. (Do not confuse with the Centre Saint-Raphaël which is just before.) The monastery is almost at the end of the road, on the edge of the forest, in an area with no traffic.
