Libreville

Libreville ©
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hassane II Mosque and Pongara National Park. Visit L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville and Notre-dame de Lourdes for their historical value. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Pointe-Denis Beach, get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, take in the spiritual surroundings of St Marie Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture).

For other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Libreville travel itinerary planner.
