Cape Malheureux church Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Cape Malheureux church

Emblematic of Mauritius, this little church with its famous red roof stands on the north coast, facing the lagoon. It was erected in memory of the shipwrecks which happened there, the peninsula having taken the name of 'Cape Malheureux' -meaning the 'unhappy cape'. Sunday morning mass attracts a considerable crowd, but whichever the time of your visit, do not hesitate to go inside the church. You will discover a rudimentary interior with white walls, visible framework and a carved stone altar.
