Almost 2 000 km from the African coast and 3 500 km from Brazil rises in the middle of the open sea St. Helena, island of sailors and astronomers, of history and contrasts.
The volcanic island with the characteristic profile and the bright colors was once Portuguese, then Dutch, before it came in 1657 in the possession of the British East India Company.
It is one of the most remote islands in the world and the notorious exile of Napoleon in the period from 1815 until his death in 1821. But Saint Helena is much more ... As a haven for the liberated African slaves, she played an important role in the abolition of slavery, which few know today.
For centuries, the island fortress served as the base for the ships of the East India Company on its route, until it lost its strategic importance through the opening of the Suez Canal.
And today's visitor is enchanted by the genuine warmth of the locals, the original biodiversity and beautiful underwater world. Finally, the island impresses with its healthy climate, an undreamt-of wealth of plants and flowers, the purity of the spices and the exciting variety of fragrances that permeate and sustainably characterize all INVINCIBLE ESPRIT spirits.
