Mosque of the Divinity

The Mosque of the Divinity outside of Dakar fuses modernism and traditional Islamic architecture. With its two towers, it provides the perfect lookout point over the vast ocean waters washing over Senegal -- it remains an important pilgrimage site despite the tourism appeal. For an even more breathtaking panorama, venture out onto the cliffs surrounding the mosque.

Do & See

Giant bronze statues, fantastic art museums, mosques, cathedrals and tons of fascinating history mean that you're sure to find plenty to do in Dakar. If you feel like exploring a bit further outside the city, attractions like the pink Lake Retba, the Village des Tortues, and the nearby Gorée Island make for great day trips.
