Sightseeing at Banjul’s Arch 22

One of the most iconic sights to see when visiting The Gambia’s capital is the Arch 22. The historic monument was built to celebrate the military rebellion that happened on the 22nd July 1994. The arch sits proudly across Independence Drive and welcomes pedestrians into Banjul.

Visit to see the classical style columns and white stonework before climbing to the top floor terrace for panoramic views of the city. See spectacular sights of the River Gambia, sea and countryside. The arch is also home to a modest museum where you can learn more about the culture of the city. See exhibited ancient farming tools, traditional textile robes and bamboo weapons like bow and arrows.
