Fodor's Review

Larger than America’s Statue of Liberty, the 160-foot tall African Renaissance Monument is an imposing tribute to freedom. Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby designed the family of three—father, mother and infant—emerging from a mountain. Workers employed by a North Korean firm spent four years constructing the statue, finally completed in 2010. Take an elevator to the top for a full view of Dakar and surrounding areas. Hiring a knowledgeable guide is the best way to get a full understanding of the monument.
