Interesting facts about this location

Laborie

Laborie is a village on the south coast of Saint Lucia. It was originally called l'Islet a Caret after the Loggerhead sea turtles that were found in the area. The name Laborie is named after Baron de Laborie who was the French governor of Saint Lucia from 1784-1789. At that time the village had a population of 712. The French introduced large estates to the island and after the British took control of the island in 1814, many French landowners remained on their estates.
