Nouakchot or Nouakchott is the capital of Mauritania, with 881,000 inhabitants. It is a young Town, created in the 1950s in the territories occupied by an old French military base. Located on the Atlantic coast, Black Africa and the Arab world converge. The scene of its carpeted beaches of fishing boats is unforgettable. It also highlights the colour of its markets and, above all, the kindness of its people.
