Atakpame

Overview

Introduction

From a distance, Atakpame is somewhat reminiscent of Jerusalem. The Germans had planned for it to serve as the capital when they colonized the country, and there are still some interesting old colonial buildings to be found among the town's rolling hills. If you're lucky, you may see the tchebe ("stilt dance"), one of Togo's most renowned dances. (Check beforehand in Lome to see when performances are scheduled.) 90 mi/145 km north of Lome.
