4.3/5 based on 30+ 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.

  • Small for a Cathedral but an interesting example of the diverse history of the island. Great place to visit on one of the wetter days. 
  • We made during our visit to Port-Louis, visit to the Cathedral, which seems a little stuck behind the business district. Very well maintained, this place of worship is simple and clear. We feel a genuine fervour. As often in churches, feels good, cool, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A nice step.
