Saint Pierre Basse Terre

Comme beaucoup de quartiers excentrés de Saint Pierre, le quartier de Basse Terre était principalement destiné à la production agricole, principalement du manioc, de la canne et de la vanille. C'est dans ce quartier que fut construit en 1927 le canal Saint Etienne qui est à l'origine de la prospérité de la Capitale du Sud.

Aujourd'hui Basse Terre est devenu un quartier populaire principalement à vocation résidentielle. Il conserve cependant un cachet assez original avec ses rues étroites et sinueuses.

As a lot of outlying neighborhoods of Saint-Pierre, the neighborhood of Basse Terre was principally intended for the agricultural production, manioc, sugar cane and vanilla.  It is in this neighborhood that was constructed in 1927 the canal Saint-Etienne that is at the origin of the prosperity of the Capital of the South.  Today, Basse Terre became a popular neighborhood of mainly residential vocation.  Nevertheless it preserves a quite original character with its narrow and sinuous streets.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
