Freetown, Sierra Leone travel Guide

Freetown is the capital and largest city in Sierra Leone. A major port city in the Atlantic Ocean, Freetown is the major urban, economic, financial, cultural, educational and political centre of Sierra Leone. While the economy of the city revolves around its large natural deep-water harbour, the city is ethnically and culturally diverse, as it is home to virtually all of the country’s many ethnic groups. That no ethnic group forms a majority is an evidence to the cosmopolitan nature of the city. Freetown has a few historical landmarks connected to its founding. The Cotton Tree represents the founding of the city in 1792. Freetown gets its name from its founders and early settlers who were mostly liberated, African slaves.
