Saint Lucia Introduction

Saint Lucia is an independent island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea. It lies between Martinique and Saint Vincent, about 386 kilometres north of Venezuela.

St. Lucia is one of the Windward Islands, a chain within the larger archipelago of the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies.

A Short Background

The island, with its fine natural harbor at Castries, was contested between England and France throughout the 17th and early 18th centuries (changing possession 14 times); it was finally ceded to the UK in 1814. Self-government was granted in 1967 and independence in 1979.
