SLAVE CAVES MANGAPWANI
Slave Chambers: Built around 1880 from the cave and connected to the seaside 2kms away, the area is surrounded by varieties of indigenous trees such as Breadfruit, Ramboutants and scent shrubs. It was an important transit point for the captured slaves to be sold to the outside world at the time of the abolishment of slavery in 1873.
Between 1880 and 1905, the chamber was being used as a place of concealment of the human cargo pending their disposal.
