The Saint-Antoine monastery is a former charitable institution located in Basse-Terre. Founded in 1897 in front of Notre-Dame-of-Guadeloupe Cathedral at the l’Historien-Lacour, it is listed as a historical monument since 2007
Founded in 1897 – at the request of Bishop Clément Soule – by a charity organization of the Saint-Francois factory, the monastery was intended to welcome people in need to make up for the inadequacies of the hospices of the city. It remains active until 1985 with the reception of retired people without resources. It is now owned by an association attached to the diocese of Basse-Terre and Pointe-à-Pitre, the Congregation of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul.
Some parts of the buildings, dilapidated due to the climatic conditions of the island, are classified as Historic Monuments on May 4, 2007: wooden facades and roofs, chapel in its entirety with its decoration, elements of the courtyard (basin and grilles).
