African Renaissance Monument, Dakar Reviews
One of the best place to visit in Africa. Especially in Senegal Dakar. Designing of statue from Brass metal is amazing. Top of the statue made the hotel. That's fantastic things. It's beauty of creativity made by designer's. It's salute to Senegal governments for allocating funds for such statue. This is one of the best place in Africa.
This is one of the best place i have ever invisited in Africa. This is place is full of history that is overwhelming in so many aspects. Arts from different African countries are available as well as some of the slaves's items. The monument has 4 floor of the exhibition with different histories to each floor. This is very refreshing to visit the monument. You will also get a great view over Dakar from the top. This is one of the places I will recommend to visit for your next trip to Dakar.
Outside of Goree Island this is one of the top sites to see in Dakar! Worth the trip to see it person
Very beautiful place. It is well designed and the maintenance is good.
It's okay site. Given the history of how and who built it is really does not make it fun or feel right to visit and enjoy it. It is also inappropriate given that the statues are nude and this is a Muslim and African country.
