  • Very pretty church with the background of the ocean behind it. Very plain inside as was expecting some stained glass, however very peaceful and lovely to visit.  more »
  • Unless your intention is to pray at the church there is very little here to support the hype. A quick walk around the outside of the church your back on the bus.  more »
  • Most famous church in North of Mauritius. A worthwhile visit to this cute church. Still fully operational. A true gem. Most photographed church in Mauritius. After admiring the an ice cream from local vendor or buy some fresh fish from the fishermen for superb dinner option.
  • A historic must see and a jewel of a chapel, Set at the northern tip of Mauritius, the pitturesque church looks straight out onto the ocean. A delicate and poetic place of introspection and worship. Right outside, you can chat with the locals, buy fish straight off the boat, or watch the children enjoy the surf.
