Lomé was once a city that claimed to be the Paris of West Africa, and it’s easy to see how attractive it was in its heyday. There is still real charm to its broad boulevards, palm-fringed beaches, craft markets and full-on nightlife.
Lomé, with a population of 837,437, is the capital and largest city of Togo. Located on the Gulf of Guinea, Lomé is the country’s administrative and industrial center and its chief port. The city exports coffee, cocoa, copra, and palm kernels.
