“The Cotton Tree is worth a visit just for it's huge size and history”
Reviewed May 19, 2011

The Cotton Tree is absolutely huge! It towers over most of the buildings surrounding it. It's defintely worth seeing, and you can see the bats that sleep in it during the day. A highlight of Freetown

Just across the road is a museum that you can be shown round for 10,000 leones. It's all outdoors and tells you about the history of the country.

It is the landmark of my home country and the bats still nest in it during the day just like they did when I was kid its at least 300 years old and its a beautiful sight to behold.
