The Neighborhood of Carenage in Cap-Haitian

Here is a beautiful picture of Carenage in cap-Haitian.

Called the Versailles of the Caribbean, fitting since Cap Haitien was the Paris of the Antilles, Sans Souci Palace, built on the steam of Henri Christophe, former, self-declared King of Northern Haiti, is one of the world heritage sites of UNESCO. A guided tour reveals the massive gardens, filled with man-made springs and a waterworks system that gave entertainment to the many guests invited to the multitude of dances and dinners Christophe held there during his reign. The palace should have lasted long into posterity, but was destroyed by the 1842 earthquake.
