Soufriere is near some of St. Lucia's most interesting geologic features, most notably the twin Piton volcanoes and the active caldera for which the town is named.

Founded by France in the 18th century, Soufriere (pronounced su-FREE-er) is located 12 mi/20 km south of Castries. The town retains some of the French-colonial charm of its original colonizers.

If you're near Anse La Raye on a Friday, consider hanging around for the village's weekly Friday Night Fish Fry. The popular event draws residents from all over the island. In addition to fried fish (dorado, mackerel, tuna), there's lambi (conch), lobster, octopus, and even green fig and saltfish, all prepared seven different ways. Be sure to get there before dusk for the best selection. Local bands often perform, so expect dancing in the streets.
