MAKE ABOMEY AND PORTO-NOVO TOURISM HUBS FOR VOODOO

Contact
Abomey and Vodoo culture

Developing the tourist hub of Abomey-Porto-Novo will allow the world to discover a unique story: the kingdom of Abomey and the artistic and cultural traditions of Voodoo. To ensure this has the widest possible appeal, the Government plans to finance the construction of a theme park, a museum dedicated to Voodoo arts and civilisations, and performance spaces to reveal Benin’s unique traditional dances and costumes.
