The Fort des Oliviers

This tourist site is an important historic heritage in St-Louis du Sud city, at 34,7 km east of Les Cayes city. It was built by the French people to confront the English during the colonial era.

Facing this fort, on the other side of the sea (on Ile des Anglais), you’ll be able to visit the remains of the English ships and also the remains of the catholic churches which are more than 300 years old.

It is possible to offer yourself a visit to the fort at any time of the year. However, the ideal period is the month of August. At that time, they celebrate what they call «Festival de la Sirene» (the Mermaid Festival) beside the sea for the patronal feast. Since it’s a five day festival, you’ll have enough time to get into the groove of at least one of the musical bands that are called to perform.
