Sunday Market. For a truly local experience, visit the market
in Barber on Sunday morning. This is where the islanders meet
to eat, shop, and mingle. Treats in store include bean cake and
raisin bread. Or go for a full meal cooked on makeshift stoves.
Watch for ‘sòpi di piska’ (fish soup) and fresh ‘pika’, a spicy mix
of onions and peppers.
Kas Di Pal’i Maishi. Kas di Pal’Ii Maishi is an authentic slave
house which once belonged to the Ascension plantation
nearby. It is now an open-air museum that tells the story of
the daily lives of liberated slaves. Make sure to stop here on
your way to Westpunt for a wonderful historical tour about the
resourcefulness of people who had close to nothing.
Museo Tula. In 1795 a slave named Tula instigated a brave revolt
against his Dutch masters at the plantation of Landhuis Kenepa.
The slave rebellion and its brutal suppression by the landowners
is the central story of this museum which is located at one of
the most picturesque places on the island.
