The Grande Mosquée, built in 1893, is an outstanding example of Sahel-style mud architecture, with conical towers and wooden struts (which both support the structure and act as scaffolding during replastering).

Although entry is forbidden for non-Muslims, it's the exterior that is so captivating, especially at sunset when the façade turns golden.
