Place de l'Indépendance

Place de l'Indépendance, a central square surrounded by colonial buildings, is the very heart of the city. It's the best place to start exploring the city centre.

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.
