  • The Grand Marche of Lome is something extraordinary and is a unique experience on a human and tourist level. Sellers of various fabrics, souvenirs and junk literally storm you and bargaining of the goods becomes a ritual in which if you can hold on you have very high discounts. The market is a world of colors and if you are accompanied by an indigenous guide you can certainly do better business. We bought items including sparkling bracelets made by a very active local craftsman, at really affordable prices. And the grand Marche eventually becomes an indelible memory !

  • The large market of Lomé or Assigame is one of the largest in the sub-region. It brings together several banks and commercial establishments, in addition to the warm and colorful atmosphere of the African markets. It's a place to visit to buy loincloths, clothes, souvenirs.
