  1. The magnificent Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro is the city's primary attraction (Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Paix or Basilica Notre Dame). And it is definitely one of the most visited monuments in Cote d’Ivoire. Yamoussoukro's basilica is the world's largest Christian church, larger than St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. It is regarded as one of the most important monuments in Côte d'Ivoire.


    It was modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, and while it seats somewhat fewer people than St. Peter's, it has a taller dome and a bigger surface area. The stained-glass windows are also breathtaking. Pope John Paul II dedicated the Notre Dame Basilica.

  2. This cathedral, created by Italian architect Aldo Spirito and encompassing a whopping 14,625 square feet, is supposedly Africa's second-largest church building and can seat more than 3,500 people (4,500m square). In August 1985, Pope John Paul II inaugurated the cathedral with a spectacular opening ceremony.


    The iconic monument in Cote d'Ivoire is claimed to portray a statue of St Paul, with the buildings behind it representing his robes. The cathedral's interior features a number of stunning stained-glass tableaux. Tourists can also enjoy beautiful views of the city from the building.

  4. Hotel Ivoire lost a lot of its original style and charm when it was renovated in 2011 to meet its world-class five-star status, but if you go through to the back hotel reception, you'll see the remaining 1960s decor of fiery colors and African motifs, heavy wood carvings, and fantastically flamboyant furniture.


    This hotel has now become one of Cote d'Ivoire's most stunning monuments. The accommodations (from CFA200,000) provide fantastic views of the city and are, of course, as luxurious as it gets. Swim in the large pool that runs the length of the rear of the hotel.

  5. Some of Le Pyramide's structures are as stunning up close as they are from afar. The Italian architect Rinaldo Olivieri designed La Pyramide, which was completed between 1970 and 1973. The site is also one of the most visited monuments in Cote d’Ivoire.


    This well-known monument in Cote d'Ivoire was the first audacious construction and is regarded as an architectural highlight of African modernism. A concrete pyramid sits atop a massive cubic pillar, striped horizontally with balconies and rising over the cityscape.
