Effectively the second city of Mauritius, Curepipe is a bustling highland commercial centre famous for its rainy weather and clothes shopping. Its strange name reputedly stems from the malaria epidemic of 1867 when people fleeing from lowland Port Louis would ‘cure’ their pipes of malarial bacteria by smoking them here, although in fact it’s more likely to be named after a fondly remembered town in France.
