St Louis Cathedral, Port Louis

4.3
#8 of 17 in Historic Sites in Mauritius
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.
