The fort gives a nice view over Port Lewis. Nothing much besides the view. Found the shops inside the fort carrying some nice merchandise but were much more expensive than the city.

A rather stark area which has a cafe and a few shops inside the citadel. Views over Port Louis are excellent. Worth a visit.

This fort sits at an elevation so you get a very good view of the Port Louis city. It can be best experienced in a sunny day. And make sure you get a panoramic view to get the most of your visit. History may not be much of interest here.

Nice place to get a bird's eyeview of the city of Port Louis and harbour. Should not take more than 15-20 minutes of your time. Visit only if you are in the vicinity.

The main attraction is the commanding view over the city. If you want to learn more about the history then there are guides walking around who will willingly give you help but they dont come to you. A lot more could be made of this wonderful structure.

nothing to see in the fort, but you can click a few pics of Cityscape.. got to see full view of the city and the sea. There are a few shops in the groundfloor one can buy souvenirs. You wont miss anything if you dont visit this place, rather if on a tight schedule skip this and go to waterfront... More

This place is like the crown of port louis , after getting up to the fort you are greeted with spectacular view of the city.You can clearly see the split between residential area and the commercial one. Also in the fort they have boutique shops where you can buy souviner,local rum, food, specs.
