Galion (or Gallion) is a small village on a mountain between Scottshead and Soufrière. It's worth of visit for the great sceneries from village to the Caribbean Sea.

The village is also particular for being located in a volcanic crater. Morne Patates volcano has not erupted for thousands of years but the sulphur springs inside the crater are a testimony for ongoing volcanic activity.

It is expected that Dominica should encounter a volcanic eruption in next few decades or centuries. Morne Patates is one of the possible sites for such event.
