Notre Dame Auxiliatrice, Mauritius Overview

Situated in Cap Malheureux, the Notre Dame Auxiliatrice is one of the oldest churches that stood witness to one of the most written-about wars between the French and the British over the control of the island. It was built as a commemorative landmark to the shipwrecks that happened off the northern coast. It is also known by the name "the red roof chapel" and is renowned for its aesthetic value as well as historical significance. With a bright red roof, the church is one of a kind and a picture-perfect postcard-worthy attraction in Mauritius.

The church stands out from the other churches on the island due to its plain architecture and muted colour schemes. Founded in the 1900s, this Roman Catholic Church continues to draw as many tourists as worshippers. Dedicated to Virgin Mary, the Notre Dame Auxiliatrice Chapel also boasts of a pretty little beach right behind its main building. The church has a massive influx of newly wedded couples, while it also boasts a wonderful choir that's well known in the country. The church is a must-visit if you're at the northern part of Mauritius.

How To Reach Notre Dame Auxiliatrice

The easiest way to get to the Notre Dame Auxiliatrice is by boarding one of the many public buses from the Immigration Square in Port Louis, which will drop you off at Cap Malheureux after taking a detour through Grand Baie in a record time of less than half an hour. If you are that kind of person who prefers to have the steering wheel under their own hands, you can easily set out on a drive from Port Louis, staying mainly on M2, riding into the A5 and exiting only on B13. The latter of which will let you park your car in front of the red gates of the Notre Dame church in less than 45 minutes itself.
