A wonderful piece of history to see. Lots of parking close by. It’s does cost about Rs100 to go inside. I unfortunately didn’t as it is closed on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.
We had a great time exploring Martello Tower. The museum is small but definitely worth the visit. The guide was knowledgeable and for only RS100 the guided tour (included in the entrance fee) was well worth it. The tower is a part of Mauritian history and it was wonderful to see it!! The Martello Tower is well maintained and the staff are very friendly! The Tower even has a little gift shop for buying cute keepsakes. Highly recommended if you are passing by Martello Tower or staying in the area. Follow @heloisetravels for more reviews and photos.
