Saint-Denis is the capital and largest city in Reunion and has about 150,000 inhabitants. It is located in the north of the island along the coast of the Indian Ocean. Saint-Denis was founded in 1669.and became the capital of Reunion in 1738. It is the administrative, cultural and economical hart of the island as well as being the main transportation hub. In fact, Saint-Denis has its own traffic problems, especially during rush hour. The city itself is a pleasant place to stay with some typical (of course) French influence. Imagine yourself tasting some fine french cheese and red wine in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is also a good place to base yourself exploring the nearby coastline and mountains, which Reunion is famous fore.
