Facts About Port-au-Prince
Information for Travelers
Port-au-Prince is the capital and largest city in Haiti.
It is located in the Gulf of Gonaïves.
The National Pantheon Museum is situated below gardens, it houses a permanent exhibition that chronicles the history of Haiti.
From the Taínos and slavery to independence and the modern era.
Fascinating exhibits include exquisite Taíno pottery, the rusty anchor of Columbus' flagship, the Santa María, a copy of the fearsome Code Noir that ruled the plantations, the silver pistol with which revolutionary leader Christophe took his own life, the ostentatious crown of Emperor Faustin and trademark black hat and cane of 'Papa Doc' Duvalier.
While most of Haiti's artists are represented in the thin air of Pétionville's galleries, a collective of sculptors and installation artists produce spectacular works in an unlikely setting, squeezed into the cinder-block homes between mechanical and body shops on Grand Rue.
In this Caribbean junkyard turned cyberpunk, artists transform scrap metal and found objects into astonishing voodoo sculptures, exploring a heady mix of spirit, sex and politics, all based on the concerns of everyday Haitian life.
