The Capital Victoria

Victoria is one of the smallest capitals in the world and at the same time the only city on the Seychelles. 25.000 inhabitants live here.

You can easily walk through the city and visit the main sights: The small, silver Victoria Clock Tower in the centre of a roundabout which was built in 1903 as a memorial to Queen Victoria of England. The Sir Selwyn Clarke Market which was built in 1840 is the busy heart of Victoria, where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables and fish as well as flowers, spices and souvenirs. La Domus the former residence of the Roman Catholic priesthood (today only three priests live there the other rooms are used as offices). One of the first churches in the Seychelles, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception next to the Domus. The only Hindu temple on the Seychelles is the Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar, built in 1992 close to the market. Last but not least, there is also the Botanical Garden.
