Togo UNESCO has registered 1 site on the World Heritage list and 4 on the tentative list.
Some places are so interesting that it’s relevant to keep them for future generations. This is why UNESCO has built a list of crucial classified properties in which superb places stand out for their aesthetic, natural, artistic, or cultural significance.
More than a thousand places are registered as Unesco’s World Heritage worldwide. Due to my interest in visiting World Heritage sites, I compiled the UNESCO list in Togo and the corresponding map.

- Koutammakou, the Land of the Batammariba is a cultural heritage site located in northeastern Togo, near the border with Benin. The site is home to a traditional settlement of the Batammariba people, known for their unique architectural and cultural practices. The Batammariba people are particularly known for their construction of fortified mud houses known as “takienta”, which are designed to protect against invaders and are notable for their distinctive design and construction techniques. The Koutammakou landscape has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004 and is notable for its cultural and architectural significance. The site offers a glimpse into the traditional way of life of the Batammariba people and the ancient techniques they used to build their homes and communities.
