Yamoussoukro is a well paved city with street lights though there are very few buildings all around. The city is almost sleeping and could be a great destination for a quiet getaway.
Top on the list of places to visit in Yamoussoukro is the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace. It is regarded as the largest Christian place of worship on Earth and was consecrated in 1990 by Pope John Paul II.
The old presidential palace is another popular tourist attraction. You could also visit Yamoussoukro public gardens and Kossou Dam.
