Located on the Caribbean coast of Martinique, a dozen kilometres north-west of Fort-de-France, the charming fishing village of Case-Pilote is one of the oldest on the island. It's a peaceful and pleasant place, known in particular for its lovely Jesuit and baroque-style church which is remarkable for a number of reasons, including being the oldest church in Martinique. Dating from the 17th century with a pediment decorated with a scallop shell, it has a roof in the shape of a ship's hull. It also has an amazing mosaic depicting the baptism of Christ, made of burnt crockery debris from the eruption of the Pelée mountain in 1902. In the cemetery next to it, you can see the grave of Victor Sévère. A former Mayor of Fort-de-France, this politician from Martinique took part in the French Resistance during the Second World War.
Then you can enjoy a short walk to see a charming square with a pretty fountain, Place Gaston Monnerville, and take a stroll along the seaside.
