House of Slaves

Interesting
The controversy over the extent of slavery on Gorée Island is quite heated. But the House of Slaves, built in the late 18C in the same style as the trading houses and painted an intense pink colour, embodies the dramatic story experienced by the African people. A highly symbolic place.
