GENERAL DESCRIPTION

FABIO'S REVIEW

Red-Living
Green-Visiting

In addition to the Python Voodoo temple and the slave-trading memorial (Door of No Return), which have their separate webpages, I recommend you visit the museum, the church (which was closed when we visited, but Elvire used her Royal status to let us in…) and the colonial mansions used by the slave traders. Ouidah is small and everything (except the Door of No Return) is walking distance from the Python temple.
