One of the most beautiful capitals in the Caribbean Islands is found right here in Saint Lucia. Castries is a pleasant town and a friendly beacon of welcome at the base of its harbour. It was originally called the "Carenage" - a name which was commonly assigned to careening places in the West Indies. In 1785, Castries got its name in honor of Marshal de Castries, the French colonial Minister for the navy and the colonies, which was instrumental in having the island returned to the French in 1784, following the Treaty of Versailles. When the republican raged for altering names and abolishing institutions extended to Saint Lucia, the name was suppressed and the more homely one; "Carenage" was substituted. Then in 1803, after many changes with the name, the city finally adopted "Castries" as its name.

The Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, locally known as The Castries Cathedral is the largest church in The Caribbean and is located next to The Derek Walcott Square, a St.Lucian Nobel Laureate for literature.

Morne Fortune, a short distance from Castries, was the scene of many battles between the English and The French for control of the strategic island of St.Lucia. Remnants of those battles can be seen at The Morne and is a popular spot for visitors to St.Lucia.
