Take in the View at the Red Roof Chapel
Notre Dama Aurilliatrice Chapel marks a historic spot: This most northerly point of Mauritius is where the British first landed before laying claim to the island in 1810. Many come to the affectionately nicknamed "Red Roof Chapel" to check out the woodwork and architecture. Others come to marvel at its giant clamshell basin. Some want to embrace a bit of history. And, of course, many come to pray. But I think the trip is worth it for the view outside the chapel. Honeymooners (new and not-so-new) are all but ensured a romantic, unforgettable photo with the chapel and the sea as a backdrop.
