The Mahebourg Abreuvoir

A monument that many may not be aware of in Mahebourg is the Abreuvoir (L’Abreuvoir). This monument, or rather ‘museum’, is found very near to the waterfront at ‘Rue du Camizard’. (Click here to locate the place)

It was constructed in the 19th Century, more specifically in 1865, and destined to allow horses to quench their thirst whilst waiting for the arrival of the train passengers.

Its architecture is a tribute to the skill of the masons, engravers and sculptors of the time.
