About LoméSatellite view is showing Lomé, the national capital of Togo. The city is located in the southwestern corner of the country at the border to neighboring Ghana, on the Bight of Benin, part of the Gulf of Guinea (Atlantic Ocean).
In the late 19th century the coastal region became a German protectorate and at the end of the century the Germans laid out a new town at Lomé, then an Ewe village, to become the transportation hub and the capital of Togoland. They built three railways from Lomé to their bases at Anécho in east, Kpalimé in north west and to Sokodé in the northern hinterland.
