Cruises from St Denis
St Denis, surrounded by mountains on three sides, is the northernmost city and the capital of Réunion Island, in the Indian Ocean. It is also the most populous commune of the French overseas departments. Interesting cultural sites include museums such as Le Musée Léon-Dierx that boasts works by such famous artists as Picasso and Gaugin, and Le Muséum d'histoire naturelle de La Réunion - set in the public gardens - that has fascinating exhibits of indigenous animals past and present. If interested in architecture, then explore the unique Creole Homes that dominate the town, and you will find a few that are open to the public for tours.
