Rue St. John Perse
It is one of the busiest streets of Pointe-à-Pitre, which runs between the Rue Schoelcher and the fishing harbor basin (where a market) parallel to the Rue Peynier. It is a pedestrian street just three blocks long, which is named after an illustrious diplomat of the island of Guadeloupe and Nobel Prize for Literature in 1960. The street is full of shops and lively terraces. At the intersection with the Rue de Nozières stands the statue of Vèlol, and also in the street (on the next block) is the John Perse Museum.
