A town with a storied history, today Soufriere is a popular resort destination along the west coast of St. Lucia which tells its tales mainly through Mother Nature.  Nearly all of the most important attractions exist outside waiting to explored, but those who prefer cultural spots or places with entertainment value over natural wonders won't be disappointed either.
