About The Citadel Fort
Heading to Port Louis for some much needed shopping? We approve of it but you might want to take a small break from the busy life of Port Louis and head to Citadel Fort for a little break. You will not be disappointed!
The construction of Citadel Fort began on 11th November 1830 and ended 10 years later on 4th November 1840 and was built in the honour of the wife of King William IV. Out of the four fortresses built by the British during the 19th century, it is only the Citadel Fort, also known as Fort Adelaide, that resisted the French invasion.
The Fort was originally built as a means to fortify the defense of Port Louis but was never used for that reason. It is now known as a famous spot for impressive views of the Capital. The Fort itself is an impressive sight. With the wall made of huge cut stones of basalt rocks, the Fort still holds some remnants from the past such as cannons.
However, the Citadel Fort is now famous for the 360-degree view of the Capital. Here, you will have a breathtaking view of the Capital and you get it from all the angles! You will have views of the China Town, Champ de Mars, and mountains all at one place. So pack your things and bring along your camera as panoramic pictures are a must at this spot!
Fort Adelaide is a very famous spot among locals who often visit it during the weekend for a small break or for jogging as it does have beautiful views for sunsets and sunrise hence we do recommend visiting during the week to avoid a crowd.
The little piece of historical architecture is sure to impress you, be sure to include it in your visit. We recommend including it in your visit to Port Louis.
