BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN PORTO NOVO CITY:

Centre Songhai

The Centre Songhai is a major research, teaching, and production centre in sustainable farming. There are one-hour guided tours to visit the plantations and workshops. You can also buy the center's produce – anything from fresh quail eggs to biscuits and preserves. Songhai is about 1km north of town. Every zem knows where it is.

Musée Honmé

This museum is housed in the walled palace of King Toffa, who signed the first treaty with the French in 1863. It focuses on the alounloun musical instrument, a long piece with a sliding metal ring, the key element in the local Porto Novo adjogan music. The museum traces the instrument's symbolism as a sound that echoed the king's strength.

Musée Ethnographique de Porto Novo

Housed in a pretty colonial building, this museum is well worth a gander. The top floor is organized thematically around birth, life, and death, with everything from costumes to carved drums. Downstairs there's an impressive display of ceremonial masks.

Grand Marché

Manic, chaotic, full of questionable smells, this is your typical fresh produce plus anything market. Excellent for picking up picnic supplies.
