Visited the fort on a Tuesday. Parked at Cathedral (need parking ticket from Post Office - paid Rs600 fine). Good place to orientate yourself in terms of the layout of the city - fine views!

While the views of town are worth the climb, there's not much remaining inside the fort itself to see. The cannons are turned inwards since the authorities were more worried about rebellion than outsider attack.

Found it to be highly overrated, not worth the taxi fee to get up to the fort. In 50 years since independence it seems nothing has been done to make it more memorable. Contractors working on the fort park their cars in the courtyard, and...More

This is truly the center point of Port Louis with a spectacular view of all corners of this city from the highest vantage point that is freely accessible. You are able to view the port, the mountainous area, city center, the Champ de Mars race-course...More

Quick easy walk up from the city center. Highlight of our one-afternoon walk through the city which included the marketplace (blah), the waterfront (refreshing), the Citadel (great outlooks) and Chinatown.

An old fort worth visiting. The view over the entire city is perhaps the best feature. You can also see one of the world's oldest horse race tracks in the world.

Stunning views!! The construction on the fort was a little off putting.....but not an issue! The view from the top of the fort makes up for it!! Absolutely stunning!!

We visited as part of an arranged tour. This is a great spot for seeing the whole of Port Louis from above. Work is being carried out to update it. I would advise good footwear as there are lots of steep, narrow steps.

Free entrance. Amazing views of Port Louis, and the mountains behind. Located on the outskirts of Port Louis.

There is some nice views overlooking the city. That being said I would not make a special trip, the fort itself offers very little.

No toilets uphill. It is an open space without any restricted timing.
