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.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Fri): admire the striking features of L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville, browse the exhibits of Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), shop like a local with Les Chocolats Gabonais de Julie, then kick back and relax at Pointe-Denis Beach, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Marie Cathedral. On the 15th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Notre-dame de Lourdes and then try your luck at Casino Croisette.
