Dear visitors,

We welcome you on this space entirely dedicated to your plans to visit the city of Ouidah in its many historical, cultural, religious and touristic, attractions.
Former slave port and synthesis of the cultural diversity of Benin, Ouidah has succeeded over the years, establishing a reputation as a hospital city. During all seasons of the year, thousands of tourists flock here from different backgrounds to discover the sites and monuments that make it unique in the world.
 The challenge of the City Council that I have the honor to lead since June 20, 2008, was to sit in Ouidah, the foundations of sustainable multisectoral and multidimensional development.

The job is surely difficult because our country is in a period of economic recession and that our municipalities, for the most part, do not have the means to achieve all their goals. Only the Town Council currently established in Ouidah consists of experienced elected officials who took in hand the destiny of the Municipality with the ambition to promote its development, its growth and its emergence.
For the recovery of the historic city of Ouidah, our determination is equal to our dream of greatness for the local chart. It is obvious that members of the Municipal Council are all willing to engage in cooperative relations with all the acting and production partners and friends around the world who are willing to help and accompany us in our efforts to build a modern and prosperous Ouidah.
When we took office, we began to develop, people and structures to carry out, new options for development and prosperity that we dream for the Municipality. We keep in mind that our people need social and community infrastructure such as markets, streets, schools, clinics, administrative offices, factories, museums, touristic places and other projects it is important to put in place to improve the lives of our communities. We strive to give our best in all these directions.
Also, this website seeks in the vocation to be a communication tool, a canal opening to the external world in which new information technologies are needed more and more. Now, all tourists should be able to choose specific destination and provide better preparation.

We intend to use this tool to:

1 - Keep in touch with our dear tourists from inside and outside, Ouidahniers the Diaspora and all friends who wish to explore our concept of "New Hope for Ouidah.

2-Project outside all it is important to know about Ouidah, a town in development and modernization process, which intends to build on the benefits of decentralized cooperation, the growing effort of its partners, that we cannot quote because of the risk of forgetting, the contest of the state and particularly on its natural assets including its major historical, cultural, religious and touristic possibilities to ensure its development.
Dear friends inside and elsewhere, take your time at Ouidah and enjoy your visit.
A warm welcome in awaiting you, for, Ouidah is worth visiting.
