Rue Gabriel Péri, view in northern direction to Montagne Pelée, a 1395 m high stratovolcano. Dormant in the early 21st Century, it was the source of a pyroclastic flow which destroyed the once large town of Saint-Pierre in 1902, claiming 29,000 lives. The summit cone of the volcano has only formed during the eruptions of 1902 and 1929-1932.
