Dominica’s capital is all about the architecture. Start off at the Roseau Cathedral, which seamlessly blends gothic and Caribbean influences, all made from volcanic stone. Next, move onto St George’s Anglican Church with its stained-glass window and impressive bell tower. On Roseau cruises, you’ll also have the chance to stretch your legs with a hike up to the Morne Bruce viewpoint, which sits just above the botanic gardens. From the top, admire the colourful colonial buildings of Roseau and the twinkling sea beyond. The botanic gardens themselves spread over 40 acres, and contain banyan, ficus and palm trees. The centre of the town is the Old Market, which has stood here for over 300 years. Visit craft stalls and pick up some souvenirs to bring back home. You can learn more about the island of Dominica by visiting the Dominica Museum, which details Creole culture. Explore further afield by taking a trip to the boiling lake, which sits within the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. This lake is filled with hot, mist-shrouded water, and is the second largest of its kind in the world. Back in Roseau, complete your visit by tucking into some local cuisine – we’d recommend sancocho, a delicious stew of seven meats.
