A discovery day in Curepipe !
Halfway to Port-Louis and Mahébourg, where the convoys were used to having the break (shelter or inn, allowing them to clean out the pipe "curer la pipe"!), Curepipe, formerly known as Eau Coulée, Trou aux Cerfs or Mare aux Joncs before 1817, has grown from the 19th century because of its cooler and healthier climate (wetter as well?!!!). The railway line inaugurated in 1865 has made the installation of new inhabitants easier and a few nice creole houses still exist!
Between History, shopping and model boats workshops, Curepipe will know how to seduce you!
A refreshing stop at the Trou aux Cerfs, the most spectacular volcanic remnant in the island, the botanical garden and to close our day, at the Domaine des Aubineaux, one of the last colonial mansions built in 1872 by French architects.
And always with the "Moris Otreman" spirit, discovering, meeting and sharing with the Mauritian population! Please contact here!
