See a range of granite sculptures made in situ by various African artists at Laongo Sculpture Symposium, an open-air museum. Founded in 1989 by Burkinabe sculptor Siriki Ky, this granite park covers roughly 100 hectares (247 acres) and hosts an annual gathering of artists, who leave their impression onto the gray-pink rock. Carved faces, figures, turtles, and more lie scattered around the scantily wooded area amidst dry grass. Head to the small onsite restaurant for drinks and food.
