The area around Dakar was settled in the 15th century. Following the abolition of the slave trade and French annexation of the mainland area in the 19th century, Dakar grew into a major regional port and a major city of the French colonial empire. In 1960, it became the capital of the independent Republic of Senegal.
The city of Dakar is a member of the Organization of World Heritage Cities.
