The capital of Gabon and home to almost half of the country's residents, Libreville differs from many African cities, with paved roads, clean streets, and luxurious residences.
Take a break from the city and head to Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville and Hassane II Mosque. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre-dame de Lourdes, get a sense of history and politics at Cour Constitutionnelle, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Marie Cathedral.
