Fort de Médine : Michelin's recommendations
The Fort de Médine, built in 1855 by Louis Faidherbe, then governor of the territory, is testament to France's colonial presence in Sudan. The current restoration work on this rectangular structure with two surrounding walls is financed by France. Now well underway, the works have brought to light the monument's splendour.
