Typical houses

Architecture - Port-Louis

Converted huts (1960s style) with galleries decorated with lace fringes that provide shade and an escape from the heat; so-called “up and down” houses with matching windows on each of their two floors; traditional houses, built in the 1930s and onward, with huge balconies all around the outside and pillars with basket-handle arches. You can see several typical houses while walking around town in the vicinity of Souffleur, Rue Schœlcher  and Rue Achille-René Boisneuf, for example. The former “Maison Maréchaux” on Rue Gambetta, which was renamed “Maison Christian Galpin” in 2007, now houses the Tourist Office.
