    Favorite thing: I visited Curepipe whilst on honeymoon in October 2006, I used to live there when I was a child 20 years ago and it has changed quite a bit, my favourite thing about this town is the general Mauritian feel to it.

    Fondest memory: My best memory is eating Dhal Puri and gateaux piment from the street sellers , if you visit you MUST give them a try!

    Rose-Hill from Curepipe

    Favorite thing: This town owes its name by the pinkish colours which takes, at dawn and at the twilight, the mountain of the Corps de Garde. It is a centre of theatrical and cultural activities.

    Favorite thing: The town of Vacoas near Curepipe. The vacoas are these plants with which they make the baskets. The Mare aux Vacoas (a pond), at 6 km in the West of Curepipe, surrounded by pine forests and tea plantations, is the water tank of the neighbouring agglomerations. Woods around are populated with stags.

    Colonial house

    Favorite thing: A colonial house at Curepipe. The Dutchmen, on the road of the Indies, coast anchor the 19 September 1598 inside the lagoon, in a bay of south-east. They baptize the island " Mauritius ", of the name of prince Mauritius of Nassau, and name the bay Port Warwick, which will become Grand-Port. The island became French from 1715 to 1815, then English from 1815 to 1968, date of proclamation of its independence.
