The Hombori mount is a beautiful area of Mali which n'est not without recalling Monument Valley to the USA. C'est in this block of sandstone which the storms carved a landscape with l'aspect ruins, such as the Hand of Fatma, rock peak in the shape of drawn up hand
Concerned to protect itself from the incursions of the warriors, the Dogon populations built their dwellings under the shelters of pink sandstone cliff of Bandiagara. These loam buildings are d'accès difficult. Adapted to the topography of the ground, the family concessions are organized around where the domestic animals are allowed. Attics, of millet and corn, on floors in the shape of strengthened towers, are often located at the corners of l'enclos of the principal court. With their thick walls, these concessions often have paces of fortresses.
Mopti is built in the medium of water of Niger and Bani, d'où the name of "Venise of Mali". This city gives l'exemple d'une these rare cities where it was necessary to build the ground even city before building the houses. It is entirely surrounded by l'eau with the river d'un side and of the rice plantations of l'autre. One reaches it by dams which crosses the rice plantations. Here, any door the mark of this old coexistence of l'eau and human l activity. The market is held on l'eau and around l'eau, over the entire length of the quays built around the artificial harbour. Dug in one of the banks of Bani, the bank of Mopti.
