Port Louis Map
Port Louis. Located in the homonymous district, the city is the capital and largest city of Mauritius. It is classified as the main port of the island, having a population of 147 688 inhabitants in 2003.
Puerto Louis was founded in 1735 by French settlers, although it is currently a city inhabited by descendants of Indian, Chinese, African and European immigrants.
The Dutch took possession of Mauritius in 1638. During the first years of their arrival, they occupied two points of the island, the Bay Of The Great port known at that time as Warwyck Haven and Port Louis, which was called Noord-Wester Haven (northwest port in Dutch). The place changed its name several times, depending on who occupied the island.
