Worth going not so much for the citadel but the views as located very high up on Port Louis. Can see all sides of the city including the sea and the racecourse. Excellent for panoramic pictures.

The fort was nice. That's all. Do not expect too much. However the view of Port Louis and the harbour is good. There is no exposition or nothing alike but two canons. My guess is that they were rebuilding it.

Just a fort. We decided to go for the panoramic view and took nice pictures of both the financial and residential areas. I believe that half an hour is fine to stay.

its well maintained and offers the 360 view of the city. You can see the horse racing track. You can walk around and go to the top of the fort for the best view of the city.
