Dakar Travel Guide: 92 reviews and 255 photos
The island of Goree is close to Dakar, you reach it by boat.
It used to be the transshipment point for slaves. They were caught and bought around Senegal and then brought here to be shipped to America. On the photo is Dakar visible in the background.
This is the house of the biggest slave merchant on the island, thousands of people went through here. A door on the backside went directly towards the sea on board of a ship - the "door of no return". Now a interesting museum of this horrible chapter in african, european and american history.
A nice restaurant is located on the island la Goree, I forgot the name but you can see it on the very right of the photo more travel advice
