Ouidah & the Door of no Return

Depart for Ouidah to visit the Sacred Forest (once the private residence of the  first King of Ouidah) and the Temple of the Pythons, both important voodoo shrines.

By the main square, we find the imposing cathedral and the old colonial quarter.

Nearby the Portuguese Fort now houses the History Museum. The exhibits focus on the slave trade and Benin consequent cultural links with Brazil and the Caribbean.

Return to Cotonou if time permits, we visit the Dantokpa Market and the Artisans Center before boarding the ship.
