View of Franceville from the air. Franceville was originally founded by Spanish colonists in 1763 and was known as Puerto Alegre. However when a group of French colonists arrived in 1790 they defeated the Spaniards and overtook the islands. The French renamed the capital after their homeland.

The Tram in Franceville is a small system with two lines,red and blue. The red line encircles the city and it is easy to reach any destination while the blue line runs to the airport. Although the tram only serves Franceville there are plans to extend the network to serve the entire départissement.
