Hello dear readers,
here is a new article about my trip to Senegal. As every time I go there on vacation, I spend a whole day wandering on Goree. I never miss revisiting the House of Slaves (click to read the article).
This place is a symbol of the tragedy of the slave trade in Africa and was thus one of the first places to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
You can also visit the Historical Museum, the Women’s Museum, the Museum of the Sea, the former Governor’s Palace, the former William-Ponty School, the Saint-Charles-Borromée Church, the Mosque and the Castel.
Goree has become a must-see tourist spot in Senegal. There are plenty of small restaurants located mainly by the sea. You can also find markets and many art galleries.
Not to mention the houses still inhabited by locals. According to official censuses made in 2007, the population was 1,102 people.
This is what a tourist day on Goree island looks like. You can also rent a parasol on the beach ideal for a picnic but the beaches of Goree are far from being the most beautiful of Senegal. I really hope that you will one day have the opportunity to visit my beautiful country!
