Saint-Denis

The Essential
Interesting
Pleasantly redolent with nonchalant provincial charm, Saint-Denis makes a good introduction to Réunion. The city centre, with its neat grid layout - a reminder of its vocation as colonial trading post - can be covered on foot. As you stroll about, you come across monuments and museums, but it is simply the streets of this melting pot that offer the best taste of the symphony of colours, smells, people and languages here.
