The islands of Antigua and Barbuda (the former Dulcina) form an independent island state within the Commonwealth. They lie between the North Atlantic and the Caribbean, southeast of Puerto Rico. Antigua, one of the Leeward Islands, was successively a Spanish, French, and British colony. The still strong British influence can be seen in the Antiguans’ preference for cricket.
The capital Saint John’s, located in the northwest of the island of Antigua on a narrow part of the Caribbean Sea, is an export center for sugar, rum and cotton as well as for the manufacture of handicrafts, fiber products, pottery and textiles. The city is also interesting for tourism.
