Benin - Ouidah - Two local tourists take each other photograph below the Door of No Return. Erected by UNESCO and the Government of Benin, the Door of No Return is located in Ouidah and honours the millions of African slaves who sailed from the city's shores to the New World plantations between the 17th and the 19th centuries.<br />
Ouidah is the most important historical city in Benin and also the world's capital of voodoo. The city hosts the Temple of the Pytons, where the sacred serpents have been revered by the local population for centuries.
