Freedom Monument Seychelles Victoria
The Freedom Monument is a historical monument located on the 5th June Ave, behind the stadium, overlooking Mount Trois Freres. A sculpture of a man and woman holding a national flag cast in bronze, designed by Tom Bowers. It was opened in 2014 in honor of the 38th anniversary of Seychelles independence from the British. The opening was delivered by the president of that time, James Michel. The sculpture represents the unity of the people, patriotism, the hope of the nation moving towards a brighter future, as well as the memory of those who fell for freedom.

This city was opened in September 1953, and then it was restored with charitable funds. The temple has its own great and highest towers, those killed inside make a huge impression. Come under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Church. People should visit the bones, and they listen to them to the cars. Of course, this is worth a visit.
Kenvin House is another architectural landmark in the capital of Victoria, which emphasizes the colonial style and elegant beauty of the buildings of this small capital. It was built in the 1850s and has long been a residential home for Dr. Henry Brooks (1831-1920), which the Seychelles remembered for their heroic deeds: saving the life of a 42-year-old Italian priest, father Jeremy, from the rubble of dirt and debris that came down from Mount Three Brothers, a mudflow avalanche, and preventing the spread of smallpox brought in by a passenger from East A In 1880, the Eastern Telegraph Company, laying a cable connection between Seychelles and Zanzibar, bought a house from a doctor and made it a residence for its engineers and managers. Kenwyn got his name from the name of a village in Cornwall, in the south-west of England where the telegraph cables came from. Due to weather conditions, humid climate and termites, the house began to collapse by the end of the 1990s. In 2004, the South African company took up the restoration of the building. Only the ceiling beams remained from the original material, rafters, racks, entrance doors and floorboards (they were made of casuarine wood, resistant to termite destruction). As a result, the house turned out to be a complete copy of the former. Currently, Diamond SA jewelry store is located inside, where collections of products with diamonds and tanzanites and art a gallery where you can see the Coco
Demer collection, sculptures and paintings by local artists. There is a fountain in the small kindergarten on the right side of the house. I enjoyed it a lot, but the most amazing beauty is unconditional but, the house itself!
To get acquainted with the city and the life of the islanders, it is worth visiting at least once. Pure cleaners and pedants, they’ll like it, a sense of chaos, lack of comfort and the smell of fish will accompany you. Small in area, on the ground floor they sell fresh and dried fish, meat (in a separate snack), vegetables, fruits and souvenirs, on the second floor there is a Creole restaurant and souvenir shops. Measurement on the market is a handful on the counter or in a bag. It is rare for anyone to see scales and even more so, a cash register. For you will be asked to clean the fish 25 rupees. It is sold individually or in bundles, if small. They do not like to bargain. But then you can see the variety of fish in local waters.

Seychelles Catholic Cathedral, located near the city center, is a 5-minute walk from Victoria Bus Station. Neat, clean, bright, like thousands of other Catholic churches - and completely unique! In order to understand this, you do not even need to go inside - for this it is enough to look at the door. Massive wooden ones with bas-reliefs on spiritual topics, and it’s so touching, a Sinner falling to the Father God, crabs, fruits and bottles (with butter? With wine?) In heaven and a skeleton of fish in hell ... And the weapon is also in hell ... It’s must see with your own eyes. To the left is a beautiful colonial-style building.

Un lugar donde el presente y el pasado convergen en el centro de la ciudad. Puedes pasear por las calles durante horas mirando criptas e inventando tus propias historias sobre los "habitantes locales", admirando las estatuas y la riqueza de los acabados de algunos. Observe cómo se arruinan algunos apellidos y restos ricos de la cripta, y los siguientes que pueden pagar su vida están "poblados" en este lugar.
