The Seychelles, a paradise destination

The Republic of Seychelles is located in the Indian Ocean and is composed of a group of 115 islands, the largest being Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. It is an archipelago that is geographically connected to the African continent of which Portuguese explorers made the first reports and maps in the early 16th century.
For many years, it was a pirates' lair due to its geographical location, and the Seychelles archipelago was occupied by the French in the middle of the 18th century before coming under British control less than a century later after the Napoleonic wars.
The Seychelles obtained independence in 1976 and today are part of the Commonwealth and the French-speaking world. Currently the Seychelles, whose capital is Victoria, has a population of 90 000 inhabitants.
Every year, the Seychelles welcome many tourists who are looking for a little corner of paradise.
