The African Renaissance Monument was designed by the famous Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby Atépa, at the request of the President of the Republic of Senegal, His Excellency Maître Abdoulaye Wade.
After the first democratic change in Senegal, the monument was built, symbolizing the opening of the continent to the rest of the world.
From the top of its 52 meters, the monument is made of copper. We see a family depicted by a father carrying a child on his left arm while wrapping his wife around his other arm: the emergence of an African family.
Between 4 p.m. and sunset is the perfect time to visit the monument.
