Dassa Zoume is in Central Benin, North of Abomey and Bohicon and is on the route to the North so if you are travelling on a Sunday it is worth a stop to visit the Catholic sanctuary and pilgrimage site.
There is a modern Basilica, built in 2002 and services are held outside so it is very busy with crowds stood under colourful awnings listening to the preachers. Behind the Basilica is the ?Marial Grot,? which is a cave where the virgin Mary appeared. The hillside behind the Basilica and the Grot has 14 shrines which represent the stages of the crucifixion.
