Visit the Benin broad­way

All About History - - THE LOST CITY OF BENIN -

Ac­cord­ing to Dap­per, the first thing you saw on en­ter­ing Benin was a six-kilo­me­tre­long thor­ough­fare: “a great broad street, which is not paved and seems to be seven or eight times greater than War­moesstraat in Amsterdam. The street is straight and does not bend ay any point.” Each of the city’s nine gates led to broad streets like this, which criss­crossed the city.
