House of Slaves
Imagine the terror of being chained and forced through the Door of No Return to be herded onto ships like cattle to lands unknown. Senegal's House of Slaves was the final exit point for thousands – some say millions - of slaves who were tracked, hunted down and ripped from their native lands forever. Located on Gorée Island, the House has been turned into a museum and memorial to the Atlantic Slave Trade. Many of the African Diaspora have made pilgrimages here to reconnect with their past, as well as a number of presidents and world leaders, including Pope John Paul II. It's definitely a worthwhile destination to visit and to reflect on the injustices of the past.
