Europeans first discovered the island in early 16th century, with notable consequent colonisations by the French and the British. St Lucia remains the only country in the world named after a woman, Saint Lucy of Syracuse, a Christian martyr and patroness of the blind. Currently, over 179,000 people live on the island, with about a third populating the capital city of Castries and nearby cities, and the rest dispersed along the coast. Although English is the official language in St Lucia, 95% of the population also speak Patwah or Patois, the St Lucian Creole French dialect. The majority of the population is Roman Catholic. St Lucia is one of the sun-rich countries actively exploring the alternative energy field. In June 2017, the multinational Spain-based Grupotec company has signed a cooperation agreement with the Saint Lucia Electricity Services Limited energy corporation. Following the agreement terms, construction for a 3-megawatt solar farm will begin in 2018; eventually, the project is expected to effectively end the reign of diesel-powered generators which currently account for over 99% of electricity generation on the island. Experts say that investing in the island’s solar power plant development will soon become profitable. St Lucian landscape is quite mountainous, and its twin volcanic cones, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, can be seen virtually from any point of the island. The area surrounding these two prominent mountains is on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. The St Lucian marine area is also widely recognized for its biodiversity. Heineken, the world-famous Dutch brewing company, owns the St Lucian Windward & Leeward Brewing Limited that produces Piton Pilsner lager. In 2017, the beer won the Gold Medal at the Monde Selection Quality Awards in Brussels, Belgium. By acquiring the citizenship of St Lucia, one virtually becomes a fellow countryman to the two Nobel laureates - Arthur Lewis (Nobel Prize in Economics, 1979), and Derek Walcott (Nobel Prize in Literature, 1992).
