1. Palais presidential - Libreville

Palais presidential

The Palais Presidential, or the Presidential Palace in Gabon, is a must visit during your vacation in the country. It makes up plenty of well-developed attractions based in Libreville which include safaris and interesting landmarks, ancient settlements based deep in the rainforests and even trekking adventures. As the largest city in Gabon, Libreville is a hub of commerce and one of the first stops a tourist visiting the country makes. With a lively cosmopolitan center that rarely settles down, it houses residents that come from various old traditions. The Palais Presidential is one such stop which, albeit closed to the public, still provides a feast for the eyes and a trip down the country’s controversial and violent past. It is based just outside the city and was erected by the former president of the country, Omar Bongo in the ‘70s. The palace is heavily guarded day and night as well so you might not be able to get a closer look at it unless you are a visiting political dignitary. However, the city offers some of the best places for bargain shopping which can prove a fitting distraction along with spellbinding cathedrals that will keep you entertained for hours.
