GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Abomey is a city in southern Benin, which houses the Royal Palaces of the Kingdom of Dahomey. The surviving palaces of Ghézo and Glélé form the Historical Museum of Abomey, which features bas-reliefs on the palace walls and a throne mounted on human skulls. A nearby artisan center sells traditional crafts and textiles.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Red-Living
Green-Visiting

The city itself has no interest, head to the Royal Palaces and the Bohicon subterranean village (if you can get along with giant spiders).
