UAV flight video over UNESCO world heritage sites in Northern Haiti
A by-product of the archaeological survey in Northern Haiti by Sony Joseph Jean and Till Sonnemann, the UAV flight video shows aerial views of the Haitian landscape, e.g. the spectacular Citadelle La Ferrière and Sans-Souci Palace, built under King Henri Christophe (1767-1820) after the successful Haitian revolution against the French in 1804.
Citadelle la Ferrière and Sans-Souci Palace
The Citadelle was constructed between 1805 and 1820 on a mountain top, overlooking at 900m the northern coast of Haiti, and is known as the largest fortress in the Americas. Sans-Souci was built between 1810 and 1830, but lasted only until 1842, when it was destroyed by an earthquake. In 1982, UNESCO declared them as World Heritage Sites.
