Antsirabe

...

... is located in the Eastern region of Madagascar.


The RN7 highway arrives from the Antananarivo area to the north.

The town of Antsirabe lies around 120km south of the capital. Founded by Norwegian missionaries in 1872, it enjoys an unusually mild climate which makes it possible to grow apples, pears, plums and other temperate crops. It can even get quite chilly at night between May and September.

The old town centre is a magnificent example of colonial architecture, with a grand avenue connecting the impressive railway station with the remarkable Hotel des Thermes, an enormous and architecturally impressive edifice build around the salt springs which the missionaries though to have healing properties. Unfortunately the hotel closed for business in 2013.

The best accommodation in town is at the quaint and old-fashioned Hotel Le Trianon, followed by the reliable Couleur Cafe.

The town is absolutely filled with pousse-pousse hand-cart taxis, which you will soon feel obliged to use. Makes for an interesting way to explore this very impressive little place.

The RN7 continues south into the Ambositra area.
