Orientation

The city centre, home to most banks, airline offices and restaurants, stretches from around the landmark Tour Nabemba building in the east to Ave Cardinal Emile Biayenda. (It was known as Ave Foch until 2015, and you'll still see it signed as such.) But the vibrant, beating heart of Brazzaville lies in the neighbourhoods that splay beyond the centre, such as Poto-Poto to the north and Bacongo to the west.
