A festival allowing both Mauritians and tourist to discover and rediscover the history of the capital. Whethere you are residents of the island of Mauritius or staying in one of its hotels or villas, do not miss the opportunity to drop by and enjoy this festival!


                     “Stunning lights and magnificent shows”

Imagine a ballet of illuminated canoes in the harbor, or a dancing light show in the Company Garden. Porlwi by light remains a unique evening offering a unique opportunity to be amazed by the streets of Port Louis, its buildings and unusual venues which will be dressed in light. As the name suggests, this is one of the four objectives of PORLWI by Light. As you will notice on the Internet or in any tourist guide, Port Louis is often described as a living city the day. The objective of this festival is to make this city live through the night and illuminate in the dark. During these three nights, several participants will exhibit their art installations, composed of light in the streets of the capital through suspended creations or creations on the ground, or a creative lighting projected over unusual places on a course that includes the Allée des Voyageurs, Rue du Vieux Conseil, Rue La Corderie, Bourbon Street and Sir William Newton Street. Do not miss those wonderful street lights!
