The Door of No Return, also called “La Porte Du Non Retour” is in Benin. The monument marks the path by which the slaves walked their last walk on their own land before being traded to another country. Slave trade in Benin took place for around 200 years, the last being in mid-19th century. Thousands of people left their families, their homes and their land for the purpose of survival of their loved ones. There were four places in Africa where these slaves were assembled and then transported. These places were called slave ports. The monument describes this history, and is one of the four slave ports. The Door of No Return was inaugurated in 1995, and is dedicated to all those who walked this treacherous path.
