Invergoil Estate, Anse la Raye, , St. Lucia

La Sikwi (which is Creole for sugar mill) is located within the gardens of a 400-acre banana cocoa plantation belonging to the Invergoil Estate, a short distance east of Anse La Raye. Built in 1860, when sugar was St. Lucia's main export crop, the decaying site was renovated into a museum and restaurant in 1990. Tour guides demonstrate how sugar cane was turned into raw sugar and molasses. At pre-arranged times the restaurant serves authentic Creole food like salt fish and breadfruit, and drinks made from locally grown fruit. Sometimes guests are feted with live, traditional music, and drums.
