The Company's Garden is in the center of the most striking contemporary city of Port Louis. It is a haven of peace and rest, within the relative bustle of a city like this, in front of the Mauritius Institute. This garden is known for its gigantic trees, which have speakers with a strident Indian music and insistent that demonstrates the preeminence of Hindi culture on the island. Its name comes from what formerly belonged to the garden India Company French. Being a swamp at first, the place was later transformed into a botanical park by Mahé de La Bourdonnais in the year 1735, and then repopulated by trees under the British government in the year 1828. Today, the people of Port Louis go there to rest, or have lunch under the shade of the tree. Other than that, the park is full of statues, busts and monoliths dedicated to the heroes of Mauritia and dating posters of poems and novels. Nice for a break and to have a drink before you go walking and exploring the city.
