Cilaos The Essential
Interesting
It is the clean air, fresh climate - very welcome in the hot season - and thermal springs that Cilaos is famed for. Nonetheless, it had to wait until the late 19C and the opening of the thermal baths by Dr Mac-Auliffe for its development to take off. Nowadays, rue du Père-Boiteau is the hub of the village's activity, with its shops and restaurants, where you can taste the local wine. Note also the slender bell tower of the church, Église Notre-Dame-des-Neiges.
