    Small park with some birds, some trees, but ocean side promenade was better, some trees were interesting

    This museum has many Impressionist paintings collected by the same man who collected the big names you've heard of. These artists are lesser-known, but to my eye matched the quality and methods of the well-known Impressionists. I guess relative fame was sorted out later.

    I personally didn't like the city of Saint Denis. But this park is immersive. Suddenly I found myself walking inside clouds and having great sights from the top. It's intended for families. Many attractions for kids and places to picnic. However there may not be enough if the park gets crowded. Nice place to walk around or follow tails. Ah, the drive up and down is also interesting and challenging at the same time.

    The main drag in Saint-Denis with town hall, tourist bureau, shops and lots of colonial era dwellings. A nice spot to stroll and admire the area.

    This church's name translated means "Church of our Lady of Deliverance". We only had the chance to see the outside of this very colorful cathedral but were impressed. In fact, I have never seen a Catholic Cathedral in any town anywhere that stands out this beautifully. You can't miss it driving thru town. The detail is amazing to see in this neo-gothic structure. The restoration on the church was completed in 2012 at a cost of 1.8 million euro. Looking at per-restoration photos, you would swear this was not the same church. AMAZING transformation!

    BOTTOM LINE: The church was originally dedicated in 1897 and was not originally painted as it is today, so it is a bit more embellished. It is made of basalt stone. Interior photos I saw were just as amazing also. Worth your visiting to see when visiting St Denis. MY RATION: 9/10.

    The new exterior colors are natural stone with yellow, grey and red accents and a red roof.

    The museum is free, it is quite small with all the information in French, so if you are looking to learn and do not have a handle on the language its not really worth a visit except to observe the taxidermy. Considering how young the island is and how elusive some of the rarer and more charismatic species are, the museum has done well, there is good information on extinct and extant species of the mascaenes. However more of the specimens are Madagascan but the natural history of these islands can still be seen and the lemur taxidermy is a gem, despite some of the more questionable taxidermy there.

    For a Cathedral it was a bit on the small side? And as luck would have it, undergoing renovations, so the facade was hidden. Still a lovely Church with a pleasant fountain & shaded area in the forecourt and external statue of Jesus on the cross & Bell tower. The Church was built in 1829 in the Tuscany style, so deserves a touch up! Its all white exterior captures your eye easily and is well worth a quick look.

    Every time I go visit my parents in Reunion we do this hike.
    It is not that easy, meaning that you will definitely sweat but it is accessible to everybody who can climb.
    The views are amazing, the plants as well and the way well indicated. You'll might even make friends as it is a very famous hike, full of locals.

    Lovely big park, though not near centre ville at all. Wide open spaces, funny man made hill and water fall thing in the middle, looks like it's from an Indian jones movie. I suggest packing a picnic and driving there as it is not near any hotels except maybe the mecure.

    We have been visiting it more then once, to buy vegetables and fruits, souvenirs, spices.
    It is a cute, little center town market. The only black point were the not super friendly welcome from many if the locals and the attitudes towards our tiny, poodle...
    We find our joy in the second boutique at the left side from the parking entry. The young lady is very kind, she helped us to choose the right spices we were looking for. The little juicy bar at the opposite side is also run by young, friendly locals, we enjoyed a refreshing coffee, then tested a nice instantly open coconut from the fruits and vegetables vendor in front of it😊
    Good location, variety of products, good prices, it definitely worth a visit.

    One of the in-town sites that we saw as we walked around from our cruise ship. It's old fashioned European architecture here in the tropics. Amazed us. Lovely.
