L'Aapravasi Ghat Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover L'Aapravasi Ghat

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2006, it served to welcome immigrant Indian workers during the 19th and 20th centuries. More than half a million workers passed through here before being sent to the sugar plantations of Mauritius, Réunion, Australia, and even the Caribbean. Located in the district of Port Louis, the site covers an area of 1,640m². However, not all of the infrastructures have survived the passing of the years. Only a few vestiges remain. Once you have passed the entrance gate, you can still see the relics of the hospital, the kitchens and the common areas.
