Musee de Guahaba - Limbe

The town of Limbé, part of Arrondissement du Limbé, played an integral part in Haiti's liberation.

Limbé's location in the Valley of Limbé sequestered the town from nearby areas. Its mountains offered protection to slaves engaged in a rebellion to free themselves from bondage.

Limbé slaves traversed mountain paths to secretly meet with slaves living below Limbé. They forged an alliance, which led to their defeat of the French in Cap-Haitien in 1803.
