St-Marc is a commune of western Haiti, the 4th largest city of the country and the 2nd largest of the department of Artibonite after Gonaives. Its port is largely used and preferred due to the heavy congestion in Port-au-Prince, and its central location between major cities of the area which holds most of Haiti’s total population.
It is located on the site of a Native Taïnos unfortified town of the 15th century that was at the northern limit of the caciquat of Xaragua. It used to be known as “Amani-y”. Its foundation dates back to the 17th century around 1695 by the French colonists. It is also celebrated every year on April 25, the same day as Mark the Evangelist’s feast day. It was raised to the rank of commune on Sept. 13, 1915. –
St-Marc est une commune de l’ouest d’Haïti, 4e plus grande ville du pays et 2e du département de l’Artibonite après les Gonaives. Son port est très utilisé et préféré en raison de la forte congestion présente à Port-au-Prince et de son emplacement central entre les principales villes de la région, qui abrite la majeure partie de la population totale d’Haïti. Elle est située sur le site d’une ville non fortifiée des Taïnos indigènes du 15e siècle qui se trouvait à la limite nord du cacique de Xaragua que l’on appelait autrefois “Amani-y”. Fondée en 1695 par les colons français, c’est le 25 avril, le même jour de la fête de Marc l’évangeliste. Elle fût élevée au rang de commune le 13 septembre 1915.
