Dakar, the capital city of Senegal, is located at the westernmost tip of the country on the Cap-Vert peninsula. About 500 kilometers off the coast lie the Cape Verde Islands. During the 17th and 18th centuries, numerous trading posts belonging to various European colonial empires, were established along the coast. After French colonization of the territory it called French West Africa, the town of St. Louis was the capital; in 1902 it was succeeded by Dakar. At the time of independence from France in 1960, Senegal affirmed its capital as Dakar.
