The circuits not to be missed for a successful stay on Antananarivo
Nicknamed the city of beauty, Antananarivo is the capital of Madagascar and is located in the Highlands region. Lovers of friendly atmosphere will appreciate the local markets such as shellfish or the flower market near Lake Anosy. Antananarivo, commonly known as Tana, is perched at 1300 meters above sea level and its discovery is made over the walks, strolling along avenues and stairs always very animated. The Queen's Palace or the Rova is a key element of the visit of the city of Antananarivo.
Occupying the highest hill overlooking Anocy Lake, the Rova was once the residence of the kings of the time because its dominant position was ideal for the defense of the city. Close to the Rova is the Andafivaratra Museum or Prime Minister's Museum, so named because it was the residence of Prime Minister Rainilaiarivony who married successively three queens belonging to the Merina ethnic group. This museum houses historical collections rescued from the fire of the Queen's Palace and some representative objects of the last Malagasy dynasties. During the discovery of the capital, you will find renowned restaurants, holding a operating license where tourists can taste the Malagasy gastronomy. South of Antananarivo, in the Lower City, the Tsimbazaza Botanical and Zoological Park, which means "they are not children," makes it possible to observe lemurs.
