Castries is the capital city of Saint Lucia, founded by the French in 1650. Castries is known for being the cruise ship terminal with ships coming into Pointe Seraphine and as such offers plenty of shops and markets for tourists.

Also on offer are the beautiful murals painted by a local artist inside Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception or the Derek Walcott Square – named after the St. Lucian Nobel-prize-winning poet. We at Simplexity Travel recommend visiting Atop Morne Fortune (Hill of Good Luck) which is where the French and English battled over control of the island. This offers stunning panoramic vues of the city.


Time Difference: GMT -4 hours.

Flying time to Destination: 9 hours.
