Sites marquants de la Route de l’Esclave au Bénin is part of the Tentative list of Benin in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Highlights of the Slave Route in Bénin comprises eights monuments across the country that symbolize the route enslaved took to reach the coast where they embarked on slave ships. Ouidah was one of the main centers for the sale and embarkation of slaves within the framework of the Atlantic slave trade in the 18th century. Here a series of places of memory are linked to that trade, such as the Door of No Return. More inland, for example at Yaka and Fiditi, places of hiding are selected.
