Mantasoa, Jean-Laborde's masterpiece

Founded in the 19th century by Jean Laborde, Mantasoa is an old industrial city and a haven of peace very popular with water sports enthusiasts for its beautiful lake. Among the monuments inherited from the genius of the first Consul of France in Madagascar that can be visited in the city, mention the house Jean Laborde. It was built at the same time as the creation of the city of Mantasoa and remains one of his rare works spared during the destruction of his achievements after his death.

The tomb of Jean Laborde in Mantasoa

In addition to the many buildings that Jean Laborde built in Mantasoa, his own tomb is one of the most visited in the city. Baptized by himself "Soamandrakizay", meaning eternal happiness in Malagasy, Jean Laborde rests there since his disappearance on December 27, 1878. Queen Ranavalona II organized for him a lavish national funeral, corresponding to his high rank and accompanied by the orchestra royal.
