Destination Details

Cap Malheureux, Mauritius

The Red Roof Chapel, Cap Malheureux

Cap Malheureux is the most northerly point of the island and the place where General John Abercrombie landed his troops when the British first attacked the island. A tiny chapel famous for its red roof, the Notre Dame Auxiliatrice – commonly known as the Red Roof Chapel – is worth a quick visit. Be sure to look out for its intricate interior woodwork and for its holy-water basin fashioned out of a giant clamshell.
