"Ouidah, the spiritual capital of Benin" Ouidah by georeiser

Ouidah Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 51 photos

Ouidah is the spiritual capital of Benin with a population of 100.000 people. The city has some popular attractions like the Market Center, Maison du Brésil art gallery, a voodoo python temple and numerous statues and monuments where the slaves were taken to the beach.

My memory of Oidah is the corrupt police. The bush-taxi was stopped by the police for nothing, just to pay a dash-bribe. Two different road blocks within the city border. I was sitting in the back seat of the car and was told to "hide my white face" when the driver went out to pay the usual 5000 CFA in bribes.
