Anse is the beautiful spot where Paul Gauguin painted during his visit to the island of Martinique. Although Gauguin's stay here was short, lasting but a few months in 1887, he is considered the island's most famous resident. A museum here displays memorabilia and reproductions of his Martinique works.
The euro is the official currency in Martinique. U.S. dollars are accepted in some hotels, but generally at an unfavorable rate.
