Saint Lucia : Pitons, Markets and Breathtaking Views
Continuing our island hopping journey we got to Saint Lucia,a tiny island in the eastern Caribbean,which is said to resemble either a mango or an avocado (depending on your taste).
The genuine nature of the island,with its unspoiled rainforest,exotic flowers,took my heart!The contrasting bright colours of the houses made the landscapes look even more like a perfect picture.
The majestic Piton Mountains,are the two volcanic plugs(speaking about volcanos, make sure you check out the tomorrow’s post)- Gros Piton and Petit Piton (Big Piton- 786 m (2619 ft) and Small Piton)Loved by the hikers and mountain climbers and are definitely most photographed thing – you can’t but notice them,from almost any spot of the island.
The Pitons are also the signature landmark of the island: you can find shops, all kinds of souvenirs and even beer named Piton!
We truly enjoyed the walk around Castries, exploring little markets, streets, bakery and real life of the island.
