Guadeloupe Guadeloupe Culture
Almost every day, there seems to be a festival or a holiday in Guadeloupe, and every year more and more visitors come to dance, eat, drink and celebrate. The most famous is the Carnival, which is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month from August to October in the city of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. All over Guadalupe there is a lot of fun, but the most popular is the Carnival of Saint Vincent, the biggest festival.
Located in the heart of the rich Creole community of the Caribbean, Guadeloupe's main tourist attractions are a paradise for committed culture enthusiasts who can explore them as if in a dream. The innovative tourism industry, which is a melting pot of cultures, is part of all that its tourism has to offer.
Whatever happens on land and on the coasts of Guadeloupe, tourists who come to the country are usually considered tourists in a new country. But here's the deal: you're here for the culture, not the tourist experience, and not just for the food and drink.
This year I was invited for the first time, and I am sure it will not be the last time, but I tend to land in destinations that are gourmet paradise. Guadeloupe, one of the most popular tourist destinations in France, is located in the French Caribbean and is inhabited by its inhospitable nature. In the 15th century, the Spanish made two attempts to settle in Guadalupe, but abandoned their claims to the island due to the ferocity of the Caribbean. For three decades, the French-American Island Society delegated the colonization of a region on each island of Guadalupe to colonize one or both of them.
On 22 February 2007, Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy separated from Guadeloupe, but they are still part of the region and the department of Guadadine. If that is not enough, you can visit three other islands or groups of islands that make up the entire archipelago of Saint Martin, the largest island in the Guadalupe archipelago. There are also a number of small offshore islands (including Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Barbados), which are easily accessible from there and are quiet and unspoiled by mass tourism. The Guadalajara Islands are the Lesser Antilles and thus the only Creole-speaking Caribbean island with a population of more than 1,000 inhabitants.
The sun also helps, but it is the diversity of the unique French-Creole culture that makes this place a great place. If you come from Europe, don't expect a culture shock here; I love the fact that the Creole and Caribbean influences have almost disappeared from the streets and souvenir shops.
The village festivals liven up the market and we stopped at the museum and restaurant in Basse Terre, where you can find a garden full of local vegetables and herbs. On a route that combined culture and nature, we explored a variety of craft beers, wines, cheeses and wine bars as well as craft shops. This trip was fully sponsored by the Guadeloupe Islands and ATOUT France, but as always all opinions will be my own.
Like St Tropez, Guadeloupe is steeped in a rich history of which its people are proud, and it is French - steeped in it.
The Guadeloupi speak French - lexified Creole, which dates back to the time of colonization and slavery. French is the official language of administration and education and is the main language for government, business, law enforcement, education and healthcare in the island's capital, St. Tropez, as well as for many of its citizens in other parts of the country and abroad. Guadeloupe speaks French, lexified as "Creole," which dates back to the time of colonization, slavery and in some cases slavery itself.
In the 19th century, Sri Lankan immigrants came to Guadeloupe and its sister island Martinique to work on sugar plantations, bringing the recipe from their homeland. Although the Reggae Dancehall is 100% Jamaican, artists from all over the Guadalupe archipelago have dedicated themselves to dance and use both the Creole and French languages.
In 1493 Christopher Columbus named the island after the shrine of the Virgin Mary, who is venerated in the Spanish city of Guadalupe in Extremadura. The Spanish name was retained when it became a French colony, without changing its spelling or phonology.
Guadeloupe is a French overseas territory, and the predominant language is French, the official language of Creole. The mix of French and African history stretches deep into the Guadeloupe Islands, but the first impression is what lies behind it. French region, which is a French region, Afro-Caribbean culture influences food, architecture, music, clothing, etc. Indeed, Paris is like a Creole - a spiced cordon bleu swept away by the presence of continental culture in a breeze. French is the official language here and therefore there is no dominant language.
