Institut Français Mauritanie
Pick up a program for the Institute; it's an excellent place, and one of the only venues in town for concerts by local musicians, films, talks, art exhibitions and dance lessons.
The largest football stadium in the country; also where locals go for a jog in the early evening. Locals report crowd control issues here for international matches.
