Reunion was only inhabited from the middle of the 17th century, it became a stopover for the French East India Company on the route to the Indies, then, from 1710, a veritable French colony (Célebre par la culture du coffee and sugar cane). The island became a French department in 1946, and since 2003 has been the most integrated overseas territorial authority in the Republic.
