On May 8, 1902 Mount Pelée, a volcano on the island erupted, destroying the town of St. Pierre killing over 30,000 people. Only one resident survived the blast — a prisoner by the name of Ludger Sylbaris, who was protected by the thick walls of his cell.

Martinique was settled by the French in 1635 and attacked several times by the British who held it for most of the period from 1794 to 1815.
Slavery was first abolished in 1794 during the French Revolution but it was restored by Napoleon in 1802 partly because of the influence of his wife Josephine who was born in Martinique to a family of wealthy plantation owners. For that reason, she is not well regarded by the islanders and her statue in the "La Savane" park is often defaced by graffiti even now, two centuries later!
It took another half century for abolitionists such as the Martinique deputy Victor Schoelcher to get France to abolish slavery definitely in 1848.
Martinique and Guadeloupe both receive a lot of tourists, about one and a half times the resident population annually, but income from tourism represents only about 10 % of GNP.
