GENERAL DESCRIPTION

La Porte du Non-Retour (The Door of No Return) was inaugurated in 1995. This monument, a memorial arch on the waterfront, is the symbol of the departure of captive slaves leaving for the Western world.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Visiting

While all other tourist attractions are in the center of Ouidah, this memorial is a bit off centered, on the beach: you will need to get a moto-taxi to reach it. It is a waterfront arch built in the mid-nineties to symbolize the departure of the slaves towards Europe and the Americas – their final destinations, as they would never return back home.
