You can tour the remains of the old warehouse and the main square where a solid ‘Henry, the Navigator’ memorial is situated.

A popular religious site in Lagos, the Santo Antonio Cathedral is an eclectic structure with styles and architecture copied from many different cultures. Work started on the Cathedral in the 17th century and then was abruptly stalled before it was renovated and completed in the 18th century. The cathedral has Gothic carvings on Romanesque walls whereas the furnishings are Byzantine and medieval French in origin. Lush lawns and a beautiful altar complete the setting. For many such beautiful monuments, book yourself a package with our car hire services and tour Lagos.
From chimney samples to the 16th century cork carvings to various other obsolete relics and antiques, the Municipal Museum has a plethora of cultural artefacts on prominent display.

Touted as one of the ‘must visit’ museum sites in Lagos, the Municipal Museum is the perfect place to sample authentic local culture.
Located in Badagry, a neighbouring suburb, the Point of No Return is a famous seaside promenade that houses the various slave-selling centres.
