San-Souci Palace – Start and Finish
San souci is French for carefree. That’s not a word that comes to mind when you think of Haiti now but Henri Christophe (Henry I, King of Haiti) chose it as the name for the luxurious palace that he built shortly after Haiti gained its independence in 1804. Surely he saw a bright future for the new country. Now the palace is in ruins but it is still impressive. It served as a symbolic starting point for our first Haiti Citadelle Run.
