Historical Beauty Cap-Haitian
The second largest city, next to Port-au-Prince in population, Cap-Haitian is famous for its French-Colonial style buildings.
The French occupied Saint Domingue Island (as Haiti was called then), of which Cap-Francis was its capital.
Haiti won its independence from France in 1804, re-naming Cap-Francis Cap-Haitian. Although Cap-Haitian suffered many natural disasters over 300 years, it is a city that has never lost its colonial beauty. In 1995, the city became known as a National Heritage site.
