Worth a quick drive to experience a wonderful view over the city and the port. There is a souvenier shop which was closed when I was there.

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. I wish they had left more of the historical artifacts in the fort so visitors can get an idea of what the fort was like... More

The view of the city is impressive from it and we had a decent cappuccino in the small cafe it contains. It has been suggested that Port Louis is a nondescript city, that's certainly not what we...

There is no reason to stop here other than to soak in the anticlimactic view over Port Louis, an utterly nondescript city. Don't waste your time.

Not much to see. The citadel itself is not beautiful and the view from it is not very pleasant. Yet it enables you to discover the modern part of the city with its buisness buildings, which we found quite ugly as a matter of fact. But of course whan you come to Mauritius you may wonder what the main city... More
