It is the most historic neighborhood where history resides on every corner. Best known for its lighthouses (the first of which was constructed in 1875 by the British) as a navigational aid for trading vessels sailing through the Gulf of Guinea. The original structure was ruined but a larger and more improved lighthouse was completed in 1921. 

At the fish market, you will witness the hustle and bustle of the fishermen as they dock their boats and fishmongers sell their catch.
