If you visit Victoria, you must take a shot with the clocktower. Just next to the Rendez vous restaurant, and center of town, you cannot miss it.

So useful. I forgot my watch and still I could tell the time no matter what side of the clock tower I was standing on (4 faces. Revolutionary). If it weren't for the clock tower everyone in Seychelles would be late for all their pressing engagements. In terms of aesthetics its a beautiful blend of classical European architecture with a...
