Blue Penny Museum: The obsession and pride the people of Port Louis have with their stamps is nothing short of contagious. It’s exactly this that will lead you to visit the Blue Penny Museum.

Fort Adelaide: If there’s a view you won’t forget, it’s from Fort Adelaide. Needless to say the Fort is built in a strategic location at 240 feet above the sea level. Constructed during the colonial era, the British didn’t want the French settlers in Port Louis to revolt and be prepared in case they do. So, Fort Adelaide was in a way, built in anticipation.
