Layen Mausoleum

Yoff village is a strongly religious community, where drinking and smoking are forbidden, and visitors are expected to dress appropriately. This mausoleum is dedicated to Saidi Limamou Laye, the founder of the Layene Muslim brotherhood, and its location on the beach and sand floor make for an interesting visit.
