Place de l'Independence

Independence Square, the heart of the city.

The nerve center and ground zero of Dakar, lo encuentras caminando prácticamente en el extremo sur, por donde se reparten algunos de los puntos más característicos de la capital. Named thusly after Senegal's independence from France in 1960, it's also one of the city's more eclectic areas, as you'll see historic colonial buildings such as the Chamber of Commerce or Government Palace alongside more modern structures. From here you can start any way to the main avenues to Medina, the presidential palace and the main railway station.
