The Doctor`s House on Curieuse Island remains a recognized national monument for Seychelles

The Doctor`s House on Curieuse Island remains a recognized national monument for Seychelles (Forimmediaterelease.net) Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, has said that the Doctor`s House on Curieuse Island remains a recognized national monument for Seychelles. The Doctor`s House, is undoubtedly one of the jewels of the attractions of the island according to Minister St.Ange.

The Curieuse Island Doctor`s House was converted into a historical museum of factual information about William MacGregor, one of several doctors in colonial times posted to Seychelles, who resided in the building to treat leprosy sufferers on the island from 1829 to 1900 and again from 1937-1965.

The Creole-style architecture building is situated next door to the BBQ Shed where the Marine Park Authority welcomes visitors to the island, struggling to stay open to visitors.

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture believes that this Doctor`s House should be seen as a great monument that speaks of the past and that needs to be preserved for prosperity. Minister St.Ange and his Principal Secretary for Culture, Benjamine Rose, visited the Doctor`s House last weekend in their rounds to see the national monuments of Seychelles first hand. “The lovely Creole architecture of that house needs to be appreciated. It provides cross-ventilation style of aeration that keeps the house cool at all times," said PS Rose.

Presently, boat charters, yachts, and cruise liners mooring on Curieuse Island are designated the purpose-built barbecue sitting area for their clients. “This is one island open to visitors that has the ability to help increase the yield derived from the tourism industry of Seychelles. Environment-friendly visitors are landing on Curieuse Island by the hundreds daily, and the Marine Park Authority is better placed to assess the part being played by Curieuse Island in the development of the tourism industry and how it could also create jobs for our people," Minister St.Ange said.
