Island of Gorée

Off the coast of Dakar, Gorée exercised an extraordinary fascination on its visitors, both famous and anonymous. A unique, emotionally-charged, where the houses with the facades of ochre and pink, hint at, through their blue shutters, the history of slavery. Visit the House of Slaves, lulled by the narrative lyrics that accompany it, transports you back in time.

The vibrations of the ghosts of the past are felt in every room, especially in front of the " door of no return ", the amazing contrast between the darkness of the corridor, and the blue of the Ocean. Also, the incredible beauty of the island, mix tying of quietude and refinement, the museums and the fascinating work of artists local painters, are the price of a tour of Goree.
