This building is located on the southeast of the city and it offer such a great view of the city. This is a must place to be if you are in Port Louis.

Our tour guide brought us to the Citadel on the way back to Grand Bay. It is definitely worth a visit, good history and amazing views of Port Louis. The view point from the top gives great perspective and fabulous photo opportunities. I would recommend...More

Visited as part of a cruise shore excursion. Restored fort at back of Port Louis with high ramparts which give great panoramic views over Port Louis and out to sea.

Visited the fort on a Tuesday. Parked at Cathedral (need parking ticket from Post Office - paid Rs600 fine). Good place to orientate yourself in terms of the layout of the city - fine views!

While the views of town are worth the climb, there's not much remaining inside the fort itself to see. The cannons are turned inwards since the authorities were more worried about rebellion than outsider attack.

Found it to be highly overrated, not worth the taxi fee to get up to the fort. In 50 years since independence it seems nothing has been done to make it more memorable. Contractors working on the fort park their cars in the courtyard, and...More
