Basseterre

Među elegantnim tkaninama i zelenim kotrljajućim brdima

Putnicima koji siđu s MSC broda u grad Basseterre, bez obzira na to što grad nije velik, neće nedostajati stvari koje treba vidjeti. Dvije gradske katedrale, anglikanska crkva St. George i katolička katedrala Bezgrešnog začeća u ulici East Square Street svakako su na vrhu tog popisa.



U ulici South Square Street možete posjetiti georgijansku kuću, jednu od najbolje očuvanih primjera lokalne arhitekture iz 18. stoljeća. Druga zanimljiva odredišta tijekom vašeg odmora u Svetom Kristoforu su izvan grada. Na putu prema Old Roadu ćete doći do kuće Romney Manor, doma karipskog batika, gdje možete doživjeti rađanje ovih rukom bojanih tkanina.

Niti jedno MSC krstarenje po Karibima neće biti potpuno bez posjeta staroj plantaži šećerne trske Wingfield Estate gdje ćete se moći diviti ruševinama i proučiti kompleksni akvadukt koji je sagrađen kako bi se njime dopremila voda iz rijeke Wingfield do plantaže. Ovo je jedinstvena konstrukcija na Svetom Kristoforu. Velika kuća (Great House) iz 18. stoljeća i njezin botanički vrt djeluju umirujuće na sva osjetila.

Ovdje se možete diviti savršeno obnovljenim konstrukcijama, odvojenoj zgradi kuhinje izgrađenoj od stijena lave, blagovaonici u kojoj može jesti 16 osoba i koja gleda na ocean te kupaonici s vulkanskim stijenama koje su se koristile za grijanje. Još manji Charlestown, glavni je grad Basseterreinog sestrinskog otoka Nevis. Ovdje morate vidjeti crkve Svetog Pavla (St. Paul) i Svetog Tome (St. Thomas).

Obje datiraju iz 17. stoljeća, kao i staro židovsko groblje u središtu grada. Morate posjetiti Muzej Nelson, odakle možete nastaviti put sve do crkve Saint John's Fig Tree Church. U ovoj se crkvi, okruženoj nadgrobnim spomenicima, nalazi potvrda o sklapanju braka admirala Horacia Nelsona i Fanny Nisbet koja je bila s otoka Nevis. Izlet završava u Velikoj kući plantaže Montpellier gdje su se njih dvoje zaljubili.

      Your excursion gets off to a start with a driving tour of Basseterre. Basseterre, founded in 1625, later became the capital of St. Kitts in 1727. Historical Basseterre was first ruled by the French from the mid 1600's to the early 1700's when the English took over the reins of ownership. Efforts have been made to maintain aspects of Caribbean architecture that was greatly inspired by both the European and African heritage of the island. Stop at the Roman Catholic Co-Cathedral on your way to the next stop, Romney Manor, home of the world famous Caribelle Batik. Visit the demonstration room, where the acclaimed artists illustrate the wax and dye process of batik making. The Romney Manor Estate encompasses eight acres of historical ruins, ancient Carib Indian Rock drawings and a beautiful botanical garden. Then you will be transported back to your awaiting ship.

      On leaving the port you will travel through Basseterre to the tourist and residential resort area of Frigate Bay.

You will drive up Timothy Hill, the entrance to the Southeast Peninsula. You will enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful drive over the rolling hills, each gentle turn providing a different spectacular view - the sea on either side; the land interrupted by salt ponds of differing size. 11 kilometers of natural landscape and environment! You finally arrive at the bar and restaurant on the beach with beautiful vistas of Nevis. A warm smiling Caribbean welcome awaits you. Walk out to the oversized wooden decks decorated with upscale Caribbean themes and then onto the beach with the beautiful sea and the whispers of lapping waves.

    Saint Kitts and Nevis

    Nekadašnje omiljeno odredište aristokracije
    Nekadašnje omiljeno odredište aristokracije

    Na krstarenju do Svetog Kristofora i Nevisa upoznat ćete dva karipska otoka koja su često posjećivali elitni turisti tijekom najmanje dva stoljeća. Ovi su otoci bili omiljeno odredište europskog plemstva između 19. i 20. stoljeća.

     
     
    Na sjeveroistočnoj obali Svetog Kristofora nalaze se plaže od crnog vulkanskog pijeska, dok u zaljevu Dieppe Bay možete zaplivati u mirnom moru koje štiti veliki koraljni greben. Želite li iskusiti osjećaj atlantskih valova ugrijanih grebenom, morat ćete otići do zaljeva Half Moon. Ako se iz sela Sandy Point na sjeverozapadnoj obali popnete na padine starog vulkana, doći ćete do nacionalnog parka i tvrđave Brimstone Hill. Iz ovog mjesta, koje je uvršteno na UNESCO-v popis svjetske baštine, moći ćete uživati u predivnim pogledima koji se pružaju sve do otoka Sveti Martin i Sveti Bartolomej. Istovremeno možete svjedočiti radu i ustrajnosti Engleza koji su izgradili ovu poligonalnu tvrđavu između 18. i 19. stoljeća, a koja je u svojim najboljim danima bila poznata kao Gibraltar zapadne Indije (uz tvrđavu Les Saint koja se nalazi na Guadalupeu).
     
    Na Nevisu predlažemo izlet na plantažu Nisbet, povijesno plemićko imanje koje je danas hotel s predivnom plažom i patuljastim palmama. Ili se jednostavno počastite kupkom u hotelu Bath House, ostacima veličanstvenih termalnih toplica iz 17. stoljeća u kojima je uživalo plemstvo sa starog kontinenta.
