2 reviews of Sacré Coeur de Balata

Lala

A famous church

This is perhaps the most famous and visited church in Martinique, a replica of the Basilica of Sacre Coeur in Paris. It is located about 7 km of Fort-de-France, and can be accesesd by exiting at RN 3 the road to Morne-Rouge (known as "Route de la Trace"), in the National Park of Balata. It is on the hill, in an elevated position with a viewpoint, from which you can enjoy magnificent views looking over the bay and the capital of Martinique.
