Noordt Wester Haven was the original name of Port Louis, which was founded by the Dutch in the seventeenth century. However, it did not become an important town until the middle of the 1700s, partly due the efforts of the French governor Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, whose statue stands in the city's main square and has become a symbol of Port Louis.
