Guadeloupe is an overseas department of France. Guadeloupe is located in the Caribbean and is part of the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. Guadeloupe consists of the islands of Basse-Terre, Marie Galante, La Désirade, the island group of Iles des Sainte and the island group of Iles de la Petite Terre.

The islands were discovered at the end of the 15th century by Columbus who gave them their present name. Prior to this the islands were known as Karukera among the locals. From the 17th century Guadeloupe is part of France. In 2007 the islands of Saint-Martin and Saint Barthélemy became overseas collectivities of France.
