It is at La Passe, where many of the Diguois live, that the heart of the island beats. A nonchalant atmosphere emanates from this central street, which is the main street of life, with its many small shops and bicycle hire companies, and its official buildings, from the post office to the police station (with its little busy officers) and from the hospital to the courthouse, via bank offices and tour agencies. The only large building, the community centre was built back from the road, on the edge of which old Creole houses are no longer legion, progress having taken the place of many character houses, as beautiful as that of the Sade family, which remains near the Cable & Wireless. During the week, schoolchildren in uniform liven up the main road, and on Sundays, the mass outing is still an attraction worthy of interest for the traveller, so much so that on that day people still dress in their sunday clothes!
