Landhuis Groot Santa Martha
One of the oldest and largest villas on Curacao was built in at the ens of the 17th century. There used to be a plantation here of 554 hectares. Until the beginning of the 19th century it was a sugar plantation, later altered to produce pulses, cattle and salt. In the late 19th century this plantation alone supplied 90% of the Curaçao salt. It was extracted from the salterns of the Santa Marthabay. The land house was renovated in 1979 and now stands to care for the physically and mentally challenged, whose crafts are for sale on the premises.
