Pays Somba, Benin

The Somba settlement is different and interesting in its own way. The architecture, has castle-like homes called Tata-Somba spread far apart to preserve tradition and their houses are characterized by various floors and thick walls devoid of windows to keep intruders out. They live an isolated life as compared to other settlements in Africa. Welfare organizations have trained guides and taught women the importance of hygiene in cooking. For tourists, the local dances organized by the natives are an attraction, in which the whole village joins to make it one large celebration. Tourist bathrooms at various places were additions. The markets here are just as interesting as elsewhere, especially since markets are put up every four days when fresh Tsiouk or sorghumbeer is brewed. More info on: www.ecowas.info
