6. CITADELLE LAFERRIÈRE
The Citadelle Laferriere is a magnificent mountaintop fortress originally built after Haiti gained independence, in order to provide protection against French invasion. It remains more or less in the same beautiful condition now as it did back then, and is, for Haitians, a revered symbol of their strength when faced with threat. Located on the northern coast of Haiti, on the top of mountain Bonnet a L’Eveque, the Citadelle provides beautiful views of the surrounding green fields.
