Standing at 50 metres, African Renaissance monument is the tallest statue in Africa. It was dedicated in 2010 during Senegal's 50th anniversary of the country's independence from French colonialists.
African Renaissance Monument is a notable landmark just outside of Dakar. The statue is a symbol of Africa's history of colonialism and its rebirth and liberation reflected in its independence from colonial masters. If you are a history junkie, especially in the area of African colonisation, you will definitely identify with the symbolism of this monument.
