The Big Mosque, Bangui

#8 of 8 in Things to do in Bangui
At The Big Mosque, you can see how local volunteers' efforts helped restore the once-looted mosque's traditional cream and green paintwork, bringing a sense of security to the otherwise troubled area. Once famously visited by the Catholic pope, this mosque represents unity and reformation despite its turbulent history. Nevertheless, recent instability in the region means that a visit to this spiritual landmark is not without its risks.
