The first city Djenne, whose foundation dates from two centuries before our era, was only discovered at the end of the 20th century. The excavations on its site have overturned many received ideas about the urban and cultural development of sub-Saharan Africa over the past twenty centuries. To visit Djenne is to discover all that this city, classified as a world heritage monument, conceals in terms of history, art, religion and cultural values.
