The Government House, the most important building of the political life in Mauritius, was built by Mahé de Labourdonnais in 1740. The house used to be the residence of the Governor. Today it is the official center of government although parliamentary issues are debated in the modern Legislative Assembly Chamber behind it. In the courtyard is a statue of the British Queen Victoria.
