Civic Center · Hidden Gem · Castle
A visit to Villa Somalia gives you the opportunity to see the official home and workplace of the country’s president. Get a glimpse of the art deco-style mansion near the ocean, initially conceptualized as the residence of the governors during the Italian occupation, and adorned with stucco elements and a distinctive tiled roof. Since the country gained independence in 1960, most of the state’s business has been done here, and the villa continues to host numerous important events.
