  • This church is a must see if you are in the North of the island. Beautiful, charming and unique, a real icon. The area surrounding the church is stunning as well, a beautiful beach and nice park...

  • Very nice place, not too much noise there. Quiet in the church, peaceful inside. Nice beach there, you get to see one of Mauritius old heritage, railways.
  • This is supposed to be one of the top attractions in the north west of the island. The town is nothing special and this red church is pretty cool. They were even having an outdoor mass when we were visiting. However, I probably wouldn't go out of my way to come here.
  • Picturesque place. Do not forget to bring your camera. The church, the Royal Poinciana trees ( Flamboyant) and the sea with islands around makes a beautiful landscape.
  • Beautiful building and well maintained. A bit difficult to find parking close by. Lots of tourists but not overcrowded. If you in the area it's well worth a visit. Beautiful photo opportunities
  • Nice place for a visit when on the island. Beautiful little wooden church in a great location near the sea. Also met a nice couple (fishermans) selling sea shells and jewelry for a great price. Wanted to support them since their situation hasn't been the best during the pandemic. Struggling and need to pay for they own vaccine.
