Government House

Mauritius / Africa

Government House is a beautiful French-colonial structure dating from 1738, originally built by Mahé de La Bourdonnais (1699-1753), and added to in later years.  It is one of the oldest buildings in Mauritius.  In the court of honour stands a magnificent statue of Queen Victoria on a high plinth.  The U-shaped building has had many French architectural influences from the time of Port Louis’s French occupation.   Here the Governor’s business was conducted, and many receptions were held.
