Fort-Liberté, one of the oldest cities in the country, was founded in 1578. The French-designed town faces a bay where one can reach many forts by boat, the most famous being Fort-Dauphin, which was built in 1732. There are two other forts overlooking the bay - Fort-Lachatre and Labouc or Fort-Labourque.
The city was once called Bayaha by the Indians and the Spanish; the French called it Fort-Dauphin (now also known as Fort St. Joseph) until their expulsion in 1804, upon which the city gained its present name.
