Saint-Pierre | Site of former theatre

WI_la729.jpg

A pyroclastic flow from Montagne Pelée completely destroyed Saint-Pierre in 1902, claiming 29,000 lives. Also the theatre was eradicated. This picture shows the former entrance area, with the remnants of some columns of the front of the building appearing behind.
