Marigot, capital of Saint Martain


Marigot
Postcard
Marigot is the main town and capital on the French side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. The town has a population of about 5,800.
 
Originally a fishing village on a swamp for which it was named, Marigot was made capital during the reign of King Louis XVI, who built Fort St. Louis on a hill near Marigot Bay. You can see the fort on top of the hill (bottom left picture on the postcard).
