Palais Présidentiel, Port-Gentil, Gabon – Heroes Of Adventure

Palais Présidentiel, Port-Gentil, Gabon 

The majestic Palais Presidentiel was built by President Bongo in the 1970s. It is a proud architecture marvel in the heart of Libreville. Visitors are not permitted inside.

The main ‘sight’ in town is the golden glass Presidential Palace, a vast seafront monolith from which the Bongo dynasty rules Gabon. It was built in the 1970s and is rumoured to have cost an incredible US$250 million. Security is tight: photography is not welcome and even lingering nearby outside will get you harassed by the guards.
