It was constructed by mahe de Labourdonais. Found on a small hill and can see , the whole view of city of port louis, champ de mars and mountains. Construct with stone and there is a shop inside, you can get souvenir. Worth to visit.

Nice to take some pictures and inside is like an abandoned fort, which it is, only a couple of shops and nothing much.

We went here today as part of a tour of Port Louis arranged by Mauritours. It's a relatively small fort but it's possibly the only place that gives a breathtaking panoramic view of Port Louis.
