Sikasso Travel guide
Sikasso : Michelin's recommendations
Even if nothing remains of the immense 9km2 fortress - Tata or tarakoko - built by King Tieba in the 19C, cosmopolitan Sikasso remains the pride of Malians. The market, King Tiéba's palace at the top of the Mamelon hill and the Triangle du Balafon festival make this an interesting place to include in your itinerary.
