The History of Sainte Marie
The pirate cemetery of Ambodifotatra, capital of Saint Mary, is the guardian of their memory. The island of Forbans, located in the heart of the bay of Ambodifotatra also keeps many vestiges of this history: a few meters deep, several pirate ships still lie there. For hundreds of years, the story of Captain Kidd has nourished the imagination. Stevenson was largely inspired by it for his novel “Treasure Island”. The Adventure Galley is still located in Sainte Marie; the ship was found in 2001, submerged a few meters from Forbans Island.
