Morne-A-l'Eau, Guadeloupe

Cemetery of Morne-à-l'eau

At the stunning, hillside cemetery of Morne-à-l’eau (Cimetière de Morne-à-l’eau), nearly all the crypts are decorated with checkered black and white tile. If you climb to the top of the hill among the dense tombs, you can look down at what appears to be a checkered miniature cityscape.

Know Before You Go

The cemetery is easily accessible from the main road.
