Most people make the journey to this high point to see the spectacular panoramic view of Port Louis. It certainly provides an excellent photographic opportunity and enables you to get your bearings and see the harbour and the race course. The building is interesting particularly the cannons that are on display.

We have difficulties finding the entrance road for car and followed a bus going up there when we almost gave up after 40 minutes. The fort itself is so so but the views up there were good. Their ladies toilet's ceiling (not sure about the Gents) also looked so 'ancient'. If you are not rushing it's worth a visit as... More

Just about average site this one! Just a few ruins of an old fort. It actually seemed pretty small to be called as a fort. Many people have refurbished the internal rooms as shops, where they sell souvenirs and handicrafts which is a sad scene. Plus, the stuff in these shops is much costly than the same stuff sold in...

But what probably will lure you is the Gem Stone museum within, which will probably steal your attention. It has a clear view of the city & coast, with Old city's attractions at your bay!

Citadel or Fort Adelaide is located at Port Louis and was built in 19th Century by the then British rulers. Advice to Indians: Do not expect similarities with the forts you have seen in India. It is just a small fortress and has never experienced any battle. Nothing much to see inside except a few canons on the rooftop. Port... More

We expected it to be crowded but got there at 14:30 to find we were the only people there, after half an hour or so a few more people had turned up but it was still very quiet, possibly coincidence but that may be the window between tour groups. It's a very impressive building huge walls and cannons, but it... More
