  • I have been several times to Lome and a jump to the fetishes market has become a habit. You pay an entrance fee but now we don't need the guide anymore. We know how to untangle ourselves among the sellers of animal finds, amulets and souvenirs. We love to buy handmade dolls that if you look at them you reflect on the Togolese magic where popular beliefs travel to an indigenous witchcraft in which the people firmly believe! Undoubtedly it is a visit that leaves your mark !

  • How to know if it's true or not. Voodoo has an important place in Africa and to discover some rites the fetish market is a gateway. I leave it to everyone to believe it or not.
