Ile de Goree Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 103 photos
Goree became notorious has a slave holding center for years during the slave trade. This was the last place many Africans saw in Africa. Many knowing their fate would jump from the cliffs surrounding the island instead of letting themselves be loaded onto a ship and brought to another land.
Despite it's brutal history it is an incredibly pleasant place and very pretty. There is a very good museum on the island dedicated to those sold into slavery. It is an unflinching look into sleepy Goree's past life.
- Pros:Beautiful, peaceful in almost an otherwordly way
- Cons:There 's only one hotel on the island its nice, but always booked
- In a nutshell:Very small but well worth a visit
