"A big and cultural town in center island" Rose Hill by Klod5
Rose Hill Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 36 photos
If you have some extra time, the town of Beau-Bassin / Rose-Hill is worth the detour.
Rose-Hill came to life at the end of the 18th century when the malaria disease was spreading in Port-Louis.
People moved their residences to the higher plains where the cooler climate was keeping most mosquitoes away.
Rose-Hill and Beau Bassin were then the new places to be and until the mid 1900’s Rose Hill and especially Beau-Bassin had plenty of wonderful colonial houses.
Owing to the quality of the earth and the humidity the huge gardens around these well-kept houses were simply magnificent.
The climate in the centre of the island is totally different to the coastal regions as the centre part is higher in altitude.
It is therefore generally cooler, especially after sunset and simply cold in winter in the highest parts temperatures may vary between 12oC and 22oC in winter or between 18oC and 30oC in summer but this is just a numerical indication as due to the high humidity (up to 90%) the extremes in temperature are amplified.
