http://www.vacationrentalstlucia.com St. Lucia is considered one of the top Caribbean tourist destinations. St Lucia is an island that has it all.
Castries the capital of Saint Lucia is often used as a cruise ship landing hub and a center for exploring the rest of the Saint Lucia attractions. However the city itself has much to offer. With a small population of 11,000, Castries is a port city that is bustling with life.
The heart of the city is its vibrant market area.
And Castries is eminently photogenic. It is surrounded by a sheltered bay where enormous cruise ships anchor at the foot of the 2795 feet high Morne Fortune.
This is a colonial city founded by the French, and its history is evident in the few colonial edifices that remain despite the two major fires that destroyed most of its historic buildings.
