The origins of St Barts

The origins of Saint Barth: Christopher Columbus

It was during his second trip that Christopher Columbus discovered Saint-Barthélemy, whom he named in memory of his brother. This island is not very rich and the Spanish colonists decide not to settle there. Two centuries later, other visitors from neighboring Saint Kitts and Nevis tried their luck there, but without much success.

The island was then sold to the order of Malta and experienced many setbacks before buccaneers and pirates found it to their liking. They developed a small commercial port there. It remains so even after its cession to the Swedes which lasted until 1852, when its capital was devastated by a gigantic fire and returned to France.
