Just a roundabout
Jun 2018 • Friends
One of the very few things that remind that Benin has a communist past, it is basically nothing more than a roundabout with a statue in the middle. This is the place where you get buses and taxis.

The place de l'etoile is a landmark in Cotonou

A landmark in Cotonou.
Nothing much to see honestly and very busy place with lots of cars and bikes.
Would only recommend it as part of the places with political and modern historical meaning for Benin people.

This seems to be at the heart of the city. Coming from the North of Benin and our vehicle stopped here. The sight is amazing and you would want to capture it.

Not sure if it is a touristy site but if you are in town, you could do a drive by for some pictures.

The traffic circle most known in Benin
Aug 2015 • Family
If you come in Cotonou with a car you’ll certainly pass by this Place to go in the City. It is not a simple Traffic Circle but something more. You can ask for the Story about it: just amazing.
But it is not the same thing if you came with aircraft. Maybe you would not have the opportunity to pass by this road junction.
So in any case is a very good Place for Tourists and you can have a conversation while the autos or the motorcycles are going around.

All cars go by the Etoile Rouge

Etoile Rouge is the central roundabout of Cotonou. at one point you will pass by the famous Etoile Rouge. Benin used to be a socialist country in the late 70's and 80's.

Main Place in Cotnou (Big Roundabout with a Monument in the center)
Feb 2016 • Solo
It's a big roundabout with a tall monument in the center, and shaped like a red star (as seen from the sky)...

Interesting to drive by or check our for a few minutes, nothing more.
