An easy 45 kilometer ride from Lome brings you to Aneho. Aneho was the capital of Togo until 1920. It is located very close to the border with Benin and if you are going form Lome to Benin it is an ideal place to stop.
Aneho offers three things: old buildings dating back to colonial times, great beaches and fishermen at work. The three combined are enough to keep you here for a day or two.
In September Glidji just 4 km north of Aneho, has its famous Guin festival which is worth a look, especially if you are interested in Voodoo practices (who isn’t).
