The first capital of Côte d’Ivoire, the Historic Town of Grand-Bassam, is an example of a late 19th– and early 20th-century colonial town planned with quarters specializing in commerce, administration, housing for Europeans and for Africans. The site includes the N’zima African fishing village alongside colonial architecture marked by functional houses with galleries, verandas and gardens.
