Admire the stone monument marking the nation's independence from France at Monument de l'Independance. Located on a vast open square with palm trees, fountains, well-kept lawns, and promenades, the 1960 landmark represents an intricately carved human silhouette within a grand stone block. Black fences close it off most of the time, so you'll need to carefully plan your arrival for a closer look at its contemporary features and details. Should you fail to make it on time, you can still enjoy the urban ambience and do some people-watching on the plaza across the street.

We caught a glimpse of a group of gardeners working on the surrounding greenery among which stand out beautiful palm trees. Fontanelle with white paw are a further frame for what is a true symbol of Togolese pride. To visit if you are in the capital of Togo !
Monument de l'Independance is nice to see. The monument is fenced off which prevents tourists from getting close pictures. more »
Iconic symbol for Togo, so definitely worth seeing, but it is gated off so you can only see it at a distance. Could be a nice garden area.
Not just the independence square but the whole area is very clean and beautiful. The square is one of the city's main attractions and it's worth visiting.
