Port Louis is the capital and largest city of Mauritius (in the middle of the Indian Ocean). The city has an estimated population of 147,000 people. The town of Port Louis was founded in 1735 by the French. Port Louis was handed city status in 1966. The port at Port Louis was founded by the French who preferred Port Louis as the City is shielded by the Port Louis / Moka mountain range. It is the largest container handling facility in the Indian Ocean and can accommodate 4th and 5th generation container vessels. I have not been to Mauritius but I would love to visit this island one day. This photo of the Port Louis skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 19th of October 2010.
