Hôtel de Ville

Architecture in Curepipe

Overlooking a small park in the centre of Curepipe, the Hôtel de Ville is one of Mauritius' best surviving structures from its colonial era. Notice the gable windows, veranda and decorative wooden friezes known as dentelles – all are signature traits of the island's early plantation architecture. The building was moved here from Moka in 1903.
