Step back in time you will be taken to the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden which dates back to 1766 and considered the most ancient of the southern hemisphere. You will be captivated by countless fragrances such as camphor, sandalwood, nutmeg, ginger and many others.
Walking through the exotic plants such as the Lotus, Water Lily, palms and others, you will admire the charming Chateau Mon Plaisir, the colonial residence of the French governor Mahe De La Bourdonnais and the white wrought iron gate awarded in two international exhibitions in London and Paris. Afterwards, on the heights of Port Louis you will visit the fort Adelaide, built by the British in 1835, which offers a picturesque view of the Moka mountains range up to the harbor and the Champ de Mars which is the oldest racecourse in the southern hemisphere and one of the oldest in the world.
After your trip in the eighteenth centuries, you cannot miss a visit to the typical Bazaar between spices and souvenirs and up to the brand shops and artisanal market of Caudan Waterfront. You will enjoy an authentic creole lunch before heading to the north coast for another shopping break at the Bazaar of Grand Bay before ending the journey at the picturesque red-roofed church of Cap Malheureux. A historical point that marks the landing of the British onto the island in 1810, to attack the French.
