Barbados cultural attractions
Barbados boasts a rich and interesting history. It became independent in 1961, and has since developed as one of the best holiday destinations in the world, attracting millions of couples and families every year.
In much of the art, crafts and literature produced in Barbados, you'll see a heavy African influence. It is an island full to the brim with artistic talent, and this is evident in the handicrafts, artwork, pottery, poetry, fashion and jewellery on offer in its gift shops and boutiques.
Barbados has a rich heritage which is displayed in many of its well preserved and restored historic buildings. Take a trip back in time on a visit to a plantation house, and explore the wonderful towns that are an important part of Barbados's past and present.
