St Louis Cathedral, Port Louis

(4.4/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest churches in Mauritius, St Louis Cathedral serves as a quiet place of meditation. The present Roman Catholic cathedral was built in 1933, after frequent cyclones destroyed earlier edifices from the 18th and 19th centuries. The oldest part of the church is an 18th-century obelisk fountain with four lion heads on each side, located just opposite the entrance. The interior of the church features statues of saints and stained glass windows depicting biblical scenes. Rest and contemplate in the small garden area in front of the church. Put St Louis Cathedral into our Port Louis itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Port Louis.

  • the largest church in Mauritius I guess. Gothic style architecture. Many tourists visit this church.  more »
  • Visiting Port Louis can not miss a visit to the Cathedral. Don't expect to see frescoes and stained glass, however, is still a place of worship emerita to be seen.
