Jérémie, the capital of Grand'Anse Départment, was hit hard by Hurricane Matthew, which took out many of the city's trees and blew the tin roofs off innumerable homes. Hard work on the part of locals and visiting NGO employees has gotten the city back up and running, though, making this one of the most pleasant and surprisingly tidy places to visit in all of Haiti.
The town is centered on Place Alexandre Dumas, with its red-and-white cathedral. Rue Stenio Vincent runs parallel to the sea, with numerous interesting old buildings and coffee warehouses, many of which are neglected. Continuing past the grubby beach takes you to Fort Télémargue, a crumbling fort that makes an excellent spot to watch the sunset.
