  • Banjul, colonial architecture - The Gambia

Banjul has a mixture of old colonial buildings, modern office buildings and shantytowns. Most of the buildings don't have more than two storeys.

There is not only a mixture of architecture in the town, but you see also a mixture of people and cultures from all over the region. You will see women and men dressed in western style, but also in traditional style.

Except the different Gambian people, you will see also for example Tuareg and Berber people and some Lebanese shopowners.

Address: Banjul downtown
