    • Its character is enhanced by the originality of the architecture and flamboyant décor. The house has been preserved in its colonial style, with high ceilings and wooden corridors, and each of the 4 rooms has its own individual character and style.
    • Antananarivo is a city of tiered streets built in and on the twelve surrounding sacred hills, around a long, narrow rocky ridge.
    • The summit near the center of the ridge was easy to fortify, as it provided an excellent vantage point and was surrounded by marshland suitable for rice cultivation.
