One of Haiti's most fascinating ruins is the home of King Henri Christophe called Sans-Souci Palace. Iit took its name from one of Haiti's leaders of the revolution, Colonel Jean-Baptiste Sans Souci. Accessed by way of Cap-Haitien, the palace is off the beaten path most traveled by many tourists. Because of this almost-remoteness, it has remained a well-preserved relic of days gone by. It is believed that its beautiful architecture was inspired by the great palace in Potsdam of the Prussian emperor Frederick the Great.
