Everyone knows that

St. Helena Island

was a place of exile and death of Napoleon Bonaparte. Fewer people know that the island is not located in the Mediterranean Sea, nor in the region of the Canary Islands or Madeira, but only God knows where.

The tomb is empty for a long time, Napoleon's ashes were exhumed and taken to France in 7 years after the funeral. A path of 500 meters length, covered with neatly trimmed lawn, runs here through the rainforest from the local asphalt road.
