Porto Novo

Porto Novo is a bustling city 20 minutes from the coast of Benin and with a strong Portuguese influence. Of cultural significance and interest are many of the museums, such as the Ethnographic Museum featuring exhibitions on the history of Porto Novo's royalty and antique Yourba tribal costumes and instruments or the Centre Songhai, a community of eco-sustainability and education. Slightly further afield, indulge in a shopping experience at Adjarra Market to find unique and handmade goods or eccentric oddities.
