Travel St. Lucia City Video Guide
Rising from the waters of the Eastern Caribbean, St Lucia forms part of a chain of volcanic islands known as the Lesser Antilles. But don’t worry – the land’s blas-tastic explosions are a thing of the past! St Lucia’s volcano, La Soufrière, last erupted in 1766 and is now considered dormant.
St Lucia hasn’t always been St Lucia! Way back in 200AD the island was called Iyonola, by the Arawak Indians who lived there. Hundreds of years later, in 800AD, another group of Amerindians called the Caribs took control of the land and named it Hewanorra.
