Straddling an undulating coastline, Freetown serves as the capital and largest city of Sierra Leone. Looking out across the Atlantic Ocean, the sprawling metropolis was established in the 18th century by freed slaves from North America and the Caribbean. During your Freetown vacation, you can uncover the city's diverse history and colorful neighborhoods featuring vibrant markets, eclectic cuisine, snow-white beaches, and heritage buildings. Shared taxis around town provide an authentic adventure and a chance to meet the locals while traveling between sights. Don't miss the over 300-year-old cotton tree in the center of the capital, a major attraction in Freetown. Plan your trip to Freetown and other Sierra Leone destinations using our handy Sierra Leone trip planner.
