The Basilica is the main, if not the only reason to come to Yamoussoukro. It doesn't mean the rest of the town has no charms, but of all the tourist traps in entire Côte d'Ivoire, this one certainly and deservedly takes number one spot.

The world's largest church is worth a visit. It is not expensive - 2000 per person (foreigners ) and additional 500 for camera. It is nice to have seen this great building - and the huge contrast to the rest of the city
