"Chinguetti About 700 years..." Mauritania Off The Beaten Path Tip by titti

Mauritania Off The Beaten Path: 62 reviews and 128 photos


<font color='#003399'><b> Chinguetti </b><p> About 700 years old. Unfortunately the old city has almost completely been abandoned since the camel caravan disappeared.
Ancient builing are being completely ruined by carelessness since a lot of people moved to Nouanchott or the new town. Sand is everywhere.<p> Walk around with no destination and be captured by the magic atmosphere. Touristically speaking, the main attraction is the old mosque. However the entrance is forbidden for non muslim. </font>
