St. Marie Urban Renewal - Interesting places and areas : Part 1

Sign in to follow this  



We'll talk about interesting areas that "flourished" with the Urban Renewal plan.

These areas gained attention by the local habitants, other cities habitants and - most important - by the tourists.

They hold interesting commerce, exclusive services, remarkable architecture - or simply a delightful view.

To start, let's see some particular places that gained more than just some renovation work, but a better concept between locals and tourists.

Eglise de St. Pierre is a dutch-styled church, built next to Gare Central and Hospital des Militaires. Next to new commercial areas, it starts to attract more than just old catholic ladies, but also old churches admirers.


A real interesting place to visit is the old downtown (do you remember ?), with the first city school and the first hospital. The central block also has some old buildings, including the old city hall.


Another very interesting place it's Le Belvédère. From there peple can watch the city moves and also can watch the sea. You can easily see St. Gérome Island and even Foulcaud-en-Ilê in sunny or soft cloudy days.


This is La Colline, a planned offices area. The buildings are now quite old, but there is a really interesting nightlife around, including dance clubs, gay bars, sailors bar (it's located next to the seaport), artists bars, 24h supermarkets, strip clubs, etc. Open minded area with lot of fun.


Next post : St. Marie "little asia" : Temple neighborhood.

Wow, very nice update.

I had missed a few updates, they were especially spectacular!

I hope this CJ's rating goes up, it's worthy of a 5 from me.
