This is our president Michel Martelly during a visit at the Citadelle. The president was very upset at the condition of the Citadelle and did not have any problem showing that to the press.

The Citadel Laferiere was built by Henri Christophe who had more than 20,000 workers in the project. This was done between 1805 and 1820 as part of a system of fortifications designed to keep Haiti safe from French incursions.
