Hotel de Gouvernement
Historically, the Hotel de Gouvernement is one of St. Barts most important structures. It was here on March 16, 1878, that the retrocession of St. Barts to France was signed.
Retrocession is the voluntary act of returning property, previously relinquished, to its original holders.
After this stop, follow Rue du Roi Oscar ( King Oscar II Street) to its end. Then go right and turn left almost immediately onto Rue Gambetta.
