Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden

Highly recommended
Pamplemousse botanical garden -as it is commonly known- is truly extraordinary. Locate a map and start exploring this tropical paradise begun in the 18C by the king's intendant, Pierre Poivre. Its paths and pools are adorned with the colours and luxuriant foliage of many plants, from teak, mahogany and talipot palms to water lilies, lotuses and spice plants. The site also contains Mon Plaisir castle, a vast colonial home built by the English in the 19C. A pleasure for the senses!
