Mauritius: The Castle of Mon Plaisir soon restored with the establishment of a documentation center

The castle of Mon Plaisir, former residence of Mahé de Labourdonnais at the botanical garden of Pamplemousses, in the North of Mauritius and registered since 1951 to the historical heritage of the island, will soon experience a vast renovation.
The castle of Mon Plaisir will thus host within its walls a documentation center with high-tech equipment to explain to the public the history of the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden and in particular tropical life of plants, flowers and shrubs that are there.
Educational films will be disseminated in 3D to visitors.
The roof of the Castle will also be renewed with wood specially processed for this purpose.
 The total cost of the work should be around 20 million rupees *, as reported by the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
* One euro roughly equivalent to 41 rupees
