The South has got many hidden treasures to discover. Famous and infamous islanders once visited the picturesque church of Souillac and left nothing but their names engraved in the tombstones of its ample graveyard. Indo-Mauritians worship and celebrate at the colourful Tamil temple, and an old sugar-cane train station is serving a brand new purpose. The home of native poet Robert Edward Hart beckons with an authentic feel combined with a breath-taking view. Huge waves break at black basalt cliffs and make the “Crying Rock” weep. And the guided tour through the historic landmark of ancient domain “Le St. Aubin” complete with rum-tasting will certainly revive your spirits.
