Cap Haitien is a seaport in northern Haiti, on the Bahía de Manzanillo, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. Cap Haitien has a spacious harbour and is an export centre for coffee, cocoa, hides, fruit, and logwood. In the 17th century the Spaniards built a settlement on the site of Cap Haitien that became a French possession in 1697. Under the French, who made it the capital of their colony of Saint-Domingue, it was a flourishing town known as Little Paris. From 1811 to 1820 Cap Haitien was the capital of King Henri Christophe, when he ruled northern Haiti. The town was almost destroyed by an earthquake in 1842. Visit the Citadelle mountain fortress, Sans Souci palace ruins and the beautiful beaches.
