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.
