Travel photos : Dominica 2007 : Portsmouth


Portsmouth is the second town of Dominica. Since its excellent natural harbour, it would probably be the capital unless being too unhealthy living environment for Europeans in the past due to surrounding wetlands. The health problem has since disappeared but the capital is now firmly established in Roseau.

Portsmouth is nevertheless a busy small town with many interesting sites and great beaches in the vicinity.

The town experienced some damage in an earthquake at 2004. For instance, the church collapsed. Due to lack of funds, new one has not yet been constructed.
