3.5 km from Dakar, the capital, the island of Gorée still jealously guards the remains of the symbols of the existence of the history of a sad past in these places (the Black Trade from the 15th to the 18th century).
From the Dakar Maritime Station, you will board a "boat", a boat that will take you to Gorée in 15 to 20 minutes.
On site you can visit the famous "Slave House" which serves as a Memory Museum where you will have a clear and detailed commentary on the causes and consequences of this human tragedy. Then take a short walk in this charming city with its shimmering colonial houses where you will have the opportunity to visit, among other things, a gallery of "Sand Paintings" and to visit the typical shops...
After an interesting visit rich in lessons and emotions, you can have lunch in one of its many restaurants facing the sea before returning to the boat in the early afternoon. It will also be a great opportunity to visit the important squares and historical monuments of the capital Dakar to discover the paradoxes of a great African metropolis with the rest of the country.
