The town of Le Moule may have served as an early French capital of Guadeloupe, but it was an important Native American settlement in precolonial times too, with some two millennia of history to its name (which, by the way, is supposedly from the Creole word for a pier, and has nothing to do with mussels). That said, unless you’re a surfer or a pre-Columbian history nut, Le Moule is unlikely to be on your itinerary.
Those passing through will enjoy the wide town square with a few historic buildings, including the prettily painted town hall and a neoclassical Catholic church. Along the river are some discernible waterfront ruins from an old customs building and a fortress dating back to the original French settlement. Parc Oüatibi-tibi, on the seafront, is an important Native American archaeological site, but the results of excavations here are now nearly all in the town's museum.
