Found in the municipality of Trois-Rivières, the Engraved Rocks Archaeological Park is remarkable for its twenty or so rocks, which bear more than 230 engravings. These date from the 4th century AD, and are marvellous evidence left by the first inhabitants of Guadeloupe, the Arawak Indians. Today listed as Historic Monuments, these schematic figures are best seen in the morning around 10-11 am, when the light falls on them and they are most clearly seen.

When you visit the Engraved Rocks Archaeological Park, you will also find a magnificent garden of lush vegetation where you can admire plant species typical of the Caribbean, such as the calabash, manioc, castor oil plant, achiote, cocoa tree and vetiver.
