  • In the heart of the Sud Sauvage (Wild South), in the mini-cirque of Plaine des Grègues, Mémé Rivière and her family invite you to discover “local saffron” in their Maison du Curcuma. Explanations provided on how they process the curcuma root to produce a spice that is an integral part of La Réunion cuisine. A visit to the private garden, a short walk – around 45 minutes – and a quick detour to visit the cave of flavours, where a range of spices used by the island’s inhabitants is on offer. A short explanatory film about saffron and sampling of products on sale at the shop.
