  Sugar Plantation
by luke850
 
 

One of the legacies of colonial rule in Barbados is the sugar plantations, in the centre of the island. They are still cultivated by local farmers, and you can buy bags of sliced up sugar cane at the side of the road for around 1 BDS. It is very interesting to see the huge plantations, on which slaves used to be forced to work, and the large plantation houses where the master would of lived. You can find the plantations by driving out of the usual tourist areas, into the centre of the island.
