Departure from the hotel early in the morning for a city tour of Dakar, to see its main sites: the presidential palace with his red guards, the cathedral of the African Memory with its Byzantine architecture and the other colonial buildings. Visit of the market Kermel and passage in front of the big mosque of Dakar, with its impressive minarets, which groups thousands of Muslim believers on every Friday. We’ll have lunch in Dakar o Gorée. Then direction the harbour for a crossing of 20 minutes in ferry towards the Gorée Island which is situated in 3, 5 km off Dakar. Classified world patrimony of the humanity by the UNESCO, Gorée became from the XVIIth century one of the main bastions of the slave trade and was alternately a Portuguese, Dutch, English and French property. With a past at the same time tragic and luxurious, the faded colours island releases a mesmerizing charm. Visit of the slaves’house and stroll in alleys papered with sand or paved by irregular blocks of basalt under baobabs, bougainvillea and old balconies. Via the Saint Charles Borromeo church built in 1830, we shall make a pedestrian stroll on the cliff of the island called the Castel, where you can see the monument Gorée Almadies, and visit also a gallery of Sand paintings. Return to the hotel at about 5pm.
