The island of Reunion has a similar history to that of Mauritius and was uninhabited up to the middle of the 17th century.This means the currency used on the island is the Euro.The principal towns are Saint-Denis, the administrative centre; Saint-Paul, the first “capital” and Saint-Pierre the most southerly town.While the Arabic, Portuguese and English travellers all visited the island, it was the French who were first to find a use for it. The first colonists arrived on the Reunion beaches in around 1663 and were accompanied by Malagasy servants.They used Reunion as a prison, or rather a penal colony for “undesirables” from Madagascar. It was during the French Revolution that the island changed its name: The “Sans-culottes” (French revolutionaries) renamed it Reunion in memory of the meeting of the revolutionary forces at Paris in 1790.
New and delightful smelling plantations flourished on the favourable heights of the western and southern regions of the island.
