Great place, can be seen far from its location.. Many people coming to visit.. Safe and secure.. Great art and meaningful.. Advise everybody to visit and have lunch or dinner in seafood restaurants... more »
Dont mind the naysayers, this monument was more special than the ‘Statue of Liberty’ and a better bargain. Dont miss this. You even get in a bit of exercise. more »
It's a true emblem of Resistance. We enjoyed the monument and the area was well taken care of. If you decide to climb the stairs its 187 to the base of the Statue. You also have an option to go inside and and experience the look out that's windows in his hat.
A must see when in Dakar! It is beyond just a simple visit to similar attraction. The weight of the history, the cultural value, the profound link with the continent development etc...
