Grande Mosque

Edit This

The Grand Mosque is an attraction that has great significance to this Muslim country: If you’re in Dakar on a Friday stop and listen to the afternoon call to prayers. (Non-Muslim women are not allowed to enter while non-Muslim men are welcome to enter if they do so just to observe.)

Ile de Goree

Edit This

The Ile de Goree is a must see. The island just off the coast is accesible by regular ferry boats. When you go there poeple will tell you that you need a guide. This is not true.

The islands itself has preserved a nice, laidback atmosphere in a historical setting. The most impressive sight is the fort from where slaves were transported to the America's.

There are some good fish restaurants near the harbour. Check the departure times of the boats before you order because you don't want to get stuck on the island.Justin : I think you are better of when more..
