Cilaos Travel guide
Cilaos : Michelin's recommendations
Cilaos owes its prosperity to the thermal baths situated in the main street, not far from the shops and Notre-Dame-des-Neiges church. The town’s traditional craft of embroidery and the more recent wine industry also contribute to the region’s economy, with two sites dedicated to these activities in the town. It’s also worth making time to visit the eco-museum dedicated to the escaped slaves and impoverished “Petits Blancs” who first populated the cirque.
