Visited the arch, was OK lovely view stairs were quite dark and damp as a cleaner was washing them. Not somewhere you would spend a lot of time doing as not a lot at the top just for the view .

This is a concrete building. The inside was complete empty. You can climb to the top of the building to have an overview of Banjul. The view isn't great (nothing particular to see in Banjul). Entrance was 50 dalasi or +/- 1 euro. Visit takes 5 minutes

Built to commemorate the coup on 22/7/94 this huge impressive looking arch is well worth a visit if you are in the area. You can climb the steps to take pictures and you will also get far reaching views when you get to the top.

For many years it was am impressive arch to drive around and photo. Now that you can climb up it is worth it for the views. I have taken great city life photos without hassle.
