A moving experience

Great

Gore Island holds the horrifying history of the slave trade. This is one of the oldest buildings on the island, where 200 people could be kept in truly terrifying conditions, and chained by shackles. There are dark cells by the sea; this was known as the point of no return for the Senagelese who were taken here. Gore wasn't as important a trading point as others in Africa, but the horrors of the slave trade were still seen, and here you are sure to have a moving experience.
