Jan | 11232 comments Dominica's Capital: Roseau
June 1, 2020 -June 30, 2020.

This month's capital challenge was created by Deanie! Thank you for sharing your visit to Dominica with us!!
Roseau-Skyline
Roseau is the capital of Dominica, known as “The Nature Island of the Caribbean”
for its volcanic mountains, lush rainforests, abundant marine life and plentiful rivers. Originally colonized by France, Dominica was given to England in 1763 at the end of
the French and Indian War. The island gained independence from England in in 1978. Situated on the southwest of the island, Roseau is noisy and vibrant during the day, but quiets down at night when the locals go to their suburban homes (and cruise ship visitors go back out to sea). The City is the administrative capital of Dominica, which is also known for having the first female Prime Minister in the Caribbean, Mary Eugenia Charles.

✱ Roseau is known for its 18th century French-Caribbean architecture.
✱ Most restaurants feature some form of Creole cuisine. Even the French and Italian restaurants have menu items with a Creole twist.
✱ The New Market on the riverbank starts before dawn on Saturday mornings, and is a popular place to buy tropical fruit, spices, vegetables, and seafood.
✱ Parts of the city were destroyed by Hurricane Maria in 2017, but much has been rebuilt since.

Choose a level and enjoy your visit!
Day Tripper: 4 Attractions
Explorer: 5-6 Attractions

********************************************************************

Tasks

1. Champagne Beach
Champagne-Beach
Dominica is known for its many beaches, though they’re not like beaches throughout most of the Caribbean. Due to the island’s many volcanoes, Dominica has black sand beaches that are frequently rocky. However, the island’s crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkeling. Champagne beach is so named because small gas bubbles continuously rise from the volcanic ocean floor, making it seem like you’re swimming in champagne.

✱ Read a book that takes place at a beach OR
✱ Read a book with an alcoholic beverage on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in CHAMPAGNE BEACH.

2. Roseau Cathedral
Roseau-Cathedral
The Cathedral of Our Lady of Fair Haven of Roseau (aka Roseau Cathedral) is a beautiful Catholic cathedral built in the Gothic Romanesque Revival style. The current building dates back to 1840, though a permanent church had existed in that location since 1730 when Father Guillaume Martel built a small wooden church on the site. The church was enlarged, repaired and added on to over the years, both to accommodate the growing population and because of hurricane damage. The current building was finished in 1916, with the completion of the spire.

✱ Read a book that takes place before the year 1916 OR
✱ Read a book in which the characters build something OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in ROSEAU CATHEDRAL.

3. Dominica Botanic Gardens
Botanic-Garden
One of the largest green spaces on the island, Dominica Botanic Gardens were established in 1890 on the site of a former sugar plantation. Originally designed to encourage crop diversification, British botanists from Kew Gardens contributed many varieties of tropical plants, causing the Dominica Botanic Garden to be one of the finest gardens in the Caribbean in the early part of the 20th century. Unfortunately, several hurricanes over the years have damaged the gardens, destroying much of the plant life. However, it is still a nice place to take a stroll or an easy hike, and visitors can see the true power of a hurricane in the gardens – a school bus, almost completely crushed by a giant baobab tree.

✱ Read a book with vegetation on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book with a character that loves plants OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in DOMINICA BOTANIC GARDENS.

4. Whale Watching Tours
Whatl-Watching
Dominica is the only country in the world that can boast that sperm whales are year-round residents. The deep, sheltered bays on the west side of the island are ideal for calving, so visitors may be treated to the sight of baby sperm whales. Other marine mammals that are frequently found in the ocean off Dominica’s shores include pygmy sperm whales, humpback whales, short-fin pilot whales, melon head whales, false killer whales, spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, Fraser dolphins, and bottlenose dolphins. This is why Dominica is referred to as the “whale watching capital of the Caribbean.”

✱ Read a book with water on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book whose first letter of the title can be found in SPERM WHALE (choose to use or ignore A, An or The) OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in WHALE WATCHING TOURS.

5. Morne Trois Pitons National Park
Morne-Trois
Just outside of Roseau is one of Dominica’s most popular attractions, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The park was established in 1975 after Dominica’s independence from the United Kingdom. It’s home to mountains, volcanoes, rivers, lakes, and many other natural attractions. Nature activities abound, including hiking, swimming, and canyoning. Popular spots within the park include Boiling Lake (the second largest fumarole in the world), Emerald Pond (where cool, green waters are a great place to cool off), and Titou Gorge (the natural cave where Pirates of the Caribbean 2 was filmed).

✱ Read a book with a green cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book in which a character participates in an outdoor activity OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in MORNE TROIS PITONS NATIONAL PARK.

6. Dominica Museum
roseau-museum
This national museum of Dominica has exhibits on the natural history and human history of the Island. It is located in the Old Market of Roseau, a historic building dating to 1810, which previously served as a marketplace and a post office. The island’s natural history is represented by displays on volcanology and native birds and fishes. The museum also has a collection of early artifacts from the native Kalinago, Arawak and Carib people. Much of the Dominica Museum is devoted to its cultural and social history, especially during its days as a British colony.

✱ Read a book by a Caribbean author or that takes place in the Caribbean OR
✱ Read a book that includes art, museums, or artifacts OR

Tasks

1. Champagne Beach
Dominica is known for its many beaches, though they’re not like beaches throughout most of the Caribbean. Due to the island’s many volcanoes, Dominica has black sand beaches that are frequently rocky. However, the island’s crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkeling. Champagne beach is so named because small gas bubbles continuously rise from the volcanic ocean floor, making it seem like you’re swimming in champagne.

✱ Read a book that takes place at a beach OR
✱ Read a book with an alcoholic beverage on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in CHAMPAGNE BEACH.

2. Roseau Cathedral
The Cathedral of Our Lady of Fair Haven of Roseau (aka Roseau Cathedral) is a beautiful Catholic cathedral built in the Gothic Romanesque Revival style. The current building dates back to 1840, though a permanent church had existed in that location since 1730 when Father Guillaume Martel built a small wooden church on the site. The church was enlarged, repaired and added on to over the years, both to accommodate the growing population and because of hurricane damage. The current building was finished in 1916, with the completion of the spire.

✱ Read a book that takes place before the year 1916 OR
✱ Read a book in which the characters build something OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in ROSEAU CATHEDRAL.

3. Dominica Botanic Gardens
One of the largest green spaces on the island, Dominica Botanic Gardens were established in 1890 on the site of a former sugar plantation. Originally designed to encourage crop diversification, British botanists from Kew Gardens contributed many varieties of tropical plants, causing the Dominica Botanic Garden to be one of the finest gardens in the Caribbean in the early part of the 20th century. Unfortunately, several hurricanes over the years have damaged the gardens, destroying much of the plant life. However, it is still a nice place to take a stroll or an easy hike, and visitors can see the true power of a hurricane in the gardens – a school bus, almost completely crushed by a giant baobab tree.

✱ Read a book with vegetation on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book with a character that loves plants OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in DOMINICA BOTANIC GARDENS.

4. Whale Watching Tours
Dominica is the only country in the world that can boast that sperm whales are year-round residents. The deep, sheltered bays on the west side of the island are ideal for calving, so visitors may be treated to the sight of baby sperm whales. Other marine mammals that are frequently found in the ocean off Dominica’s shores include pygmy sperm whales, humpback whales, short-fin pilot whales, melon head whales, false killer whales, spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, Fraser dolphins, and bottlenose dolphins. This is why Dominica is referred to as the “whale watching capital of the Caribbean.”

✱ Read a book with water on the cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book whose first letter of the title can be found in SPERM WHALE (choose to use or ignore A, An or The) OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in WHALE WATCHING TOURS.

5. Morne Trois Pitons National Park
Just outside of Roseau is one of Dominica’s most popular attractions, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The park was established in 1975 after Dominica’s independence from the United Kingdom. It’s home to mountains, volcanoes, rivers, lakes, and many other natural attractions. Nature activities abound, including hiking, swimming, and canyoning. Popular spots within the park include Boiling Lake (the second largest fumarole in the world), Emerald Pond (where cool, green waters are a great place to cool off), and Titou Gorge (the natural cave where Pirates of the Caribbean 2 was filmed).

✱ Read a book with a green cover (show cover) OR
✱ Read a book in which a character participates in an outdoor activity OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in MORNE TROIS PITONS NATIONAL PARK.

6. Dominica Museum
This national museum of Dominica has exhibits on the natural history and human history of the Island. It is located in the Old Market of Roseau, a historic building dating to 1810, which previously served as a marketplace and a post office. The island’s natural history is represented by displays on volcanology and native birds and fishes. The museum also has a collection of early artifacts from the native Kalinago, Arawak and Carib people. Much of the Dominica Museum is devoted to its cultural and social history, especially during its days as a British colony.

✱ Read a book by a Caribbean author or that takes place in the Caribbean OR
✱ Read a book that includes art, museums, or artifacts OR
✱ Read a book whose author’s first & last initial is found in DOMINICA MUSEUM
