In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit Marchand Dessalines, Haiti, a town named after Jean Jacques Dessalines, one of the leaders of the Haitian Revolution and one of the country’s founding fathers.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
