Iconic land mark in Mahe. More than 100 years old.
From the old pictures that I've seen. it has been repainted.
If you're planning to take a picture, go on the weekend or after hours. Lots of traffic during the day.

There is a local part of the market, selling fish, fruit and vegetables, and then a tourist part selling clothes and souvenirs. The local part is quite nice and with real local flavor - the tourist part is average.

For a real feel of how the locals live (and eat), you must visit the market! No negotiating as the prices are reasonable

If you haven't travelled a lot then it is lovely. Be aware though that it is very small. Having said that it is great to see all of the fresh fruit and veg and independent traders. Some souvenirs as well
