The island of Chacachacare, once a hive of activity in which devoted nuns gave of their time and care to those ravaged by the dreaded disease of Leprosy, borders the Bo ca Grandee on the north -west coast of Trinidad. An abandoned leprosy and the graveyard of the nuns are all that remains to tell the story of this significant community that served as an integral part of the culture of Trinidad and Tobago in the early nineteenth century.
