At Grenada Tourism Authority we understand that holiday snaps aren’t complete without a signature pose against a vibrant mural of some sort. Which is why we enlisted the talent of Grenadian artist Akym Pierre, to create a one-of-a-kind mosaic mural on our picturesque Carenage.
Conveniently placed opposite our tourism office, the artwork titled “Carenage”, depicts a Georgian brick façade of buildings, a female fruit vendor and a favoured scene of the forts, mountains and boats bobbing in the bay, that decorates one of the most snap-worthy parts of our capital city, St. Georges.
We love nothing more than showcasing the creativity of Grenadians while beautifying Pure Grenada. If you’re currently on-island or visiting soon, make sure you stop by and take a photograph in front of our new mosaic mural. Don’t forget to share your photo on social media and tag us @Discover Grenada or use the hashtag #PureGrenada. We can’t wait to see the fun poses you come up with.
While you’re there, make sure you take a stroll along The Carenage, where you’ll find fishermen delivering fresh catch of the day to keen customers. You’ll also pass The Christ of the Deep statue in honour of the Grenadians who rushed to the distress of passengers and crew of the ill-fated Bianca C ship. The Bianca C wreck now sits upright on her keel in 50 metres (165 feet) water and has come to be known as the Titanic of the Caribbean and one of the ‘Top Ten’ dive wrecks in the world.
Further along, you’ll find a cluster of waterfront restaurants serving up fresh seafood and flavoursome dishes. Make sure you head up Young Street to experience our National Museum, art galleries and a popular stop for most, our unique House of Chocolate Museum.
