    At the gate you can find suggestions for routes in the Sculpture Park. We took a guided tour. It was well worth to get the detailed information about the sculptures from our guide. It took us a long time to see the 180 sculptures scattered in the natural surroundings of the area, but because the interesting explanations it was not boring at all.

    Just behind the entrance are three columns depicting the history of Burkina Faso. This monument is erected in 2000. The traditional lifestyle shows farmers and village life. The modern life style in 2000 shows offices, pc's and planes.

    The park is open from 8am till 5pm. Admission is 2500 CFA.

    The Sculpture Park is situated in almost the middle of nowhere. Because the area has a rich outcrop of granite, varying from grey to pink, I suppose that can be the reason why the Ministry of Culture choose this place.

    The Ministry invited Burkinabé and international sculptors to meet here and carve the rocks. This remarkable outdoor gallery of rock sculptures started in 1989.

    The first year 18 sculptors from 13 countries came to Laongo, for example from Canada, Iran, Mali, UK, Switzerland. Many more events followed the next years with other sculptors from other countries.
