Choubaka in white and black

⚰️ Choubaka, dressed in black and white, takes us to Morne-à-l’Eau, visit a unique cemetery and pay tribute to some remarkable checkerboard graves. Built in 1847 on the side of a hill, the cemetery now houses more than 1800 stepped tombs, mostly decorated with black and white faience tiles, symbolizing the passage from life to death. Funerary rites are of particular importance to Guadeloupeans. Especially the days of All Saints and the Day of the Dead (November 1 and 2 are holidays in Guadeloupe), where the vaults illuminate with thousands of candles brought by the families of the deceased. The place remains an essential step on the archipelago.
