Gorée Island and The Door of No Return Tour from Dakar

Gorée Island and The Door of No Return Tour from Dakar

The House of Slaves on Gorée Island was reconstructed and opened as a museum in 1962. Captured people from all over West Africa were held in the building in great numbers and from there transported directly to the Americas. More than a million slaves passed through the doors of the house and then through its 'Door of No Return' to board ships. Today, the island is a peaceful retreat for the city where you can walk quiet streets, see colonial architecture and have lunch.
