Capital Of Marigot

Marigot, Sint Maarten

French Capital - Marigot

Originally a fishing village on a swamp for which it was named, Marigot was made capital during the reign of King Louis XVI of France, who built Fort St. Louis on a hill near Marigot Bay.

Marigot is an appealing spot with brightly colored houses, a scattering of restaurants and lively produce and crafts markets. Kept temperate by trade winds, Marigot stays warm and sunny year-round.
