A diverse history contributes greatly to the culture in Seychelles. A myriad of different ethnicities - African, European, Arab and Indian people - live in a harmonious country where diversity is an integral part of the landscape. Even if Catholicism is the most common religion in Seychelles, Hinduism and Islam contribute to the religious environment. Culture in Seychelles transports you to a world with both Creole and Western influences. This heritage is found through a particularly diverse architecture. Indeed, you can admire the majestic colonial mansions that transport you to another era.
