Ducos is a commune of Martinique located a few kilometers from Fort de France and Le Lamentin. The city was named Trou-au-Chat until 1855. In 1854 the town was renamed after the Minister of Marine and Colonies of Napoleon III, Théodore Ducos. Situated inland from Martinique, Ducos is a town with an artisanal and agricultural origin. It is in this commune that we find the only hydraulic dam of Martinique, the dam of Manzo with a length of 325 meters.

In Ducos the tourist places are limited. Nevertheless, the commune abounds in splendid tourist monuments which will make you capsize.
First of all, you can visit the Church of Our Lady of the Nativity, built in the 11th century on the site of a Roman temple. It is the smallest cathedral in France. The cathedral has several collections of polychrome wooden statues. These pieces represent the religious and historical heritage of Venice. These statutes come from the chapels of the calvary of the Ara district, they are witnesses of the fervor of the French revolutionaries. You will also find the Tour Saint-Lambert, on the Place Godeau, a former cemetery offering a good view of the bell tower dating from the 12th century.

You can also visit the Aubéry mansion, a castle built in the 20th century by Germain Olivier under the order of the famous, Martiniquean industrialist Eugène Aubéry. The castle includes a vast house, as well as a very large Art-Deco style garden.
