See full description & specifications

We drove for two days, sometimes lost  at the edge of  the Sahara, Just as dusk was falling  on the second day  we could make out some lights  of the town in the distance,  luckily  since there was only starlight in the Sahara.  The next day, when we went to visit the mosque itself  we felt the drive was well worth it. Chinguetti had been an important center of worship since the  thirteenth or fourteenth century.  They say the  minaret of this ancient structure is the second oldest in continuous use anywhere in the Muslim world.  It is the official symbol of Mauritania,   and  is now threatened by the  encroaching desert
