La ville de Porto-Novo
La ville de Porto-Novo: quartiers anciens et Palais Royal is part of the Tentative list of Benin in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The old quarters and Royal Palace of Porto-Novo reflect its period as the capital of the tributary of the Yoruba kingdom of Oyo and the French colony of Dahomey. The Royal Palace is also known as King Toffa's Palace, referring to the late 19th century ruler King Toffa I who was renowned for his openness and cooperation with the colonial powers.
