Notre Dame Auxiliatrice, Cap Malheureux

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Cap Malheureux
Admire the bright red roof and unique interior of Notre Dame Auxiliatrice, a French colonial-era chapel. Situated right by the coast, the deep blue of the ocean, the green of the manicured lawns, and the unmissable sloping roof create a memorable scene, so be sure to bring your camera. Take a look inside to view the interior's intricate woodwork and a font made from a giant clamshell, seamlessly balancing European and local inspirations. A stroll around the picturesque grounds completes your visit. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Anse La Raie fast, fun, and easy.

  • This church, wonderfully located on the Cap de Malheureux, is worth a visit. Also close to beach area with views of the islands of invites to different subjects. If you are in the North of the island, this attraction is worth a visit. Extra just for this car I would but not necessarily.

  • Cap Malheureux is famous especially in this wonderful little church, meeting point Mauritian practitioners every Sunday and holidays in front of the ocean, in a green setting, surrounded of flamboyant and bougainvillea, is one postcard

  • Very impressive and nice place. Can have a natural coconut drink as well there :)
  • Beautiful spot on the north coast of the island. I loved the red tin roof. It is a Catholic church, so go on a Sunday to watch the locals decked out in their Sunday best clothes. Lots of green lawns around and shade trees, with a tiny harbour for small boats. Delightful. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place for a short visit if you are in the area. Take your time for the church, take look at the beach and enjoy the view on the Island.
  • A nice viewpoint out towards the north islands. Lovely clear waters & unusual red-roofed church, but not a great deal to see & do
  • Cap Malheureux, a place I grew up during the week ends. My grand father had a beach house there. you want a good swim in the clear waters, this is the place to go when in Mauritius
