This really is one of the highlights to visit in Brazzaville. The bright green roof is beautiful, and the copper panels on the doors are amazing! Easy to find in the walkable downtown area.

I did not have a chance to go inside, but I did enjoy looking at it from the outside; it has a beautiful green roof and a nice garden where you can sit and enjoy the scene.
