After your car climbs a ridge and reveals this incredible landscape, you will utter several words of astonishment. The Pitons (French for peaks) are Saint Lucia’s most famous landmarks. They are also featured on the country’s flag. The dormant volcanic plugs are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the right is Petit Piton (2,438 feet). Bridged by the Piton Mitan Range is the twin pinnacle called Gros Piton (2,526 feet). Either one is a scenic yet sometimes challenging hike for experienced climbers. Nestled in the valley below is Soufrière.
