La Nouvelle Liberte, Douala

#6 of 11 in Things to do in Douala
Inspect the famous contemporary monument of La Nouvelle Liberte, rising from the center of a roundabout in one of the busiest area in the city. It took 11 years to complete this 12 m (39 ft) spiky sculpture. With its recycled metal scraps mounted on a boiler frame, the piece caused a lot of controversy in the community at first. However, the human figure quickly became an emblem of the city, and today many consider it a municipal heritage site. Expect a lot of traffic when visiting the statue and almost no available parking spaces. Discover how to plan a Douala trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
