is the capital and largest city in Togo. It is located on the coast, on the southwestern corner of the country, facing the Gulf of Guinea. Lomé covers 90 sq km (30 sq mi) and has a population of some 850,000 people (2012 estimate) within a metropolitan area of 1.7 million inhabitants.
Lomé developed out of a settlement established by the Ewe people in the 18th century. The population of the city grew rapidly in the 20th century, due to influx of refugees and migrants from the rural areas seeking unemployment. It is a city with a wide gap between the rich minority and the poor majority.
Visitors to Lomé will get to see the "instant Africa" that may have disappeared in other more developed cities of the continent. The Voodoo Fetish Market is an eye-opener for tourists, with its display of voodoo fetishes.
