See a range of granite sculptures made in situ by various African artists at Laongo Sculpture Symposium, an open-air museum. Founded in 1989 by Burkinabe sculptor Siriki Ky, this granite park covers roughly 100 hectares (247 acres) and hosts an annual gathering of artists, who leave their impression onto the gray-pink rock.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Ouagadougou fast, fun, and easy.
