Located on the southern coast of Mauritius, Souillac is a town steeped in traditional Mauritian culture and age-old history. During the French colonial era, Souillac used to be a vital port area for the French to carry out the sugarcane trade, and even after French departure from the island, the town still has distinct remnants of French culture and architecture. After the French left the island and the British colonised it, the port of Souillac continued to be used as a major port for trade and commerce. It was only after the introduction of the railways around the 1870s that its importance solely as a port began to diminish, and a village began to thrive there. Initially nothing more than a tiny fishing hamlet, today Souillac is home to many diverse historical and natural attractions that draw tourists all year round.
