Goree island

Reactions :  

Goree island is famous as a destination for people interested in the Atlantic Trade Slave. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site and was featured in many popular songs like "Ghetto" of Akon.
It's one of the most visited island in Senegal and the principal attractions are the "house of the slaves", the 3 museems (women, sea, history of Senegal) and the beach of course. You will be amaze by the local hospitality and their easy friendship, the sand and the small pirogues. Finally the island architecture remains the same since the 16th century. So if you go there, you will learn black history (everything has starting there), see beautiful architecture and amazing views and have fun with the beach and the local foods.
