Its capital city is Stanley, which was formerly known as Port Stanley. The governors here are pointed in London. They reside in the Government House, which is open to visitors. A quaint village, Port Stanley offers comfort and charm. On Ross Road is the Christ Church Cathedral, which was consecrated in 1892.

Port Louis has its roots with the French settlers of the area. It is most likely the oldest settlement in the islands. Historical ruins include the governor's house, farmhouses, and homes from the earliest of the French settlements.
