St John Perse Museum

St-John Perse Museum is both historical colonial home and tribute to poet and Nobel laureate Alexis Léger, who was also known as Saint John Perse. He grew up just down the street from this home, and today, his collected works as well as a recreation of his home can be found at the museum.


The first floor features manuscripts and personal items of St. John Perse, while the ground floor is a reconstruction of a 19th century home.
