Mission Lodge is one of the most significant landmarks of Mahe Island, Seychelles. The viewing spot and the adjoining ruins have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its significant contribution in the eradication of slavery in the region. It has also been declared a National Monument since 1984 due to its significant contribution in educating freed slave children in the 17th century. This effort by the missionaries eventually led to important contributions of the freed African slave-children who formed an important part in the formation of the Creole Seychellois community of today.
You can see the mountains covered in lush greenery and the blue sea encompassing the island once you reach this 405 meters high vantage point located in its southern part. You can find the road leading to it just off the trail to Morne Seychellois Peak, the highest point in Mahe. There is a gazebo where you can take in spectacular views all around and also visit the ruins of a missionary school for slave children nearby.
