Saint-Paul Maritime Cemetery

Interesting
This cemetery takes you on a poetic tour of the island's past. The sea, scent of frangipani trees and pirate stories conspire to make it even more romantic. The names of the island's oldest inhabitants can be read on its tombstones, including founders and local celebrities, such as the poet Leconte de Lisle (1818-1894), and other figures evoking historical episodes like the shipwrecked Breton sailors on the Ker Anna (1894) or Olivier Levasseur, aka La Buse, one of the most notorious pirates in the Indian Ocean.
