Visiting Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park will get you outdoors. L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville and Cathedrale Saint Pierre will appeal to history buffs. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), admire the landmark architecture of Institut francais, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Marie Cathedral, and ponder the world of politics at Palais Presidentiel.
