    Stop At: Maison de Jean Laborde, Antananarivo Madagascar

    Visit the famous Jean Laborde House founded in the 19th century. This place will immerse you in the royal history of Madagascar.

    It is in this popular resort of the capital that the first industrial city in the Indian Ocean was built. It included a cannon, cast iron and iron foundry, a glassware, a earthenware factory, a stationery, a candy factory and a soap factory. This infrastructure made Mantasoa a prosperous place during the royal era. They are part of the works of the famous Jean Laborde, French industrialist and architect in the 19th Century, who built the Palace of the Queen in Antananarivo. Today, the remains of the blast furnace, the cementing furnace, the ruins of pottery kilns, the lime kiln and the foundry workshop bear witness to Mantasoa's flourishing past.

    Jean Laborde's house was built at the same time as the industrial complex. Then there is the tomb that he built himself and called "Soamandrakizay" meaning eternal happiness.
