Next to the hotel 2 Fevrier. Clean and quiet place. Gates are generally closed, if you want to take picture you have to take it from outside. If you are in Lome, its worth a visit.

Not much to say about this landmark as it's in the middle of a closed-off plaza so you can't really get close enough to see anything. You'd probably get a better look by seeing photos online.

Definitely drive by here to see the impressive monument to independence. There are lovely reflecting pools and gardens but these are not accessible to the public. This is definitely for show, which defeats the purpose of the monument and park.

Typical oversized monument to national independence. Lots of money spent on the monument and grounds with little to see and do for the general Togo public.

It's a lovely landmark to behold and beautifully built. It was built to honour Togo's independence from France in 1960. The human silhouette is breaking away in freedom but the lovely gardens offset by the sunshine and blue skies make it worth spending a few...More

One of the problems with this monument is that you have to view it from a distance.as independence monuments go it looks better than many, it's clear what it is and not over elaborate.

It is a grand monument somewhat out of keeping with the rest of Lome but nice to see if you can - take a moto or ocada

The place is hard to miss, since Lomé is a small city. Even if you hadn't particularly planned to visit the place, you will probably pass by this monument at least once since it is in the heat of the city. Compared to other countries...More

I was fortunate enough to visit Togo and their Independence Monument last year. I totally loved the whole design of the monument; to me it was a fantastic expression of what the feeling of independence would be.

Any Taxi man should get you there for circa $5- $8, or if you are adventurous, the motorcyclist will also take you there for a far lesser fee
