Intended to be the venue for the Organisation of African Unity conference in 1984, which was cancelled when Sekou Touré died, the grand Palais des Nations served as the president's office until being destroyed in the February 1996 army rebellion. It is still in ruins. Near the palace are 50 Moorish-style villas, built to house African presidents during the conference meeting and now used as residences and offices.
