Milot Historic National Park, symbol of Haitian independence

THE BUILDINGS BLOCKS OF FREEDOM
The Milot Historic National Park is located in northern Haiti. This vast estate includes the Sans-Souci palace and the Citadelle La Ferrière, both built on the orders of Henri Christophe, who was particularly active in the independence movement. Due to an earthquake, only remnants remain.
