The first capital of C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire, the Historic Town of Grand-Bassam, is an example of a late 19<sup>th</sup>- and early 20<sup>th</sup>-century colonial town planned with quarters specializing in commerce, administration, housing for Europeans and for Africans. The site includes the N&rsquo;zima African fishing village alongside colonial architecture marked by functional houses with galleries, verandas and gardens. Grand-Bassam was the most important port, economic and judicial centre of C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire. It bears witness to the complex social relations between Europeans and Africans, and to the subsequent independence movement. As a vibrant centre of the territory of French trading posts in the Gulf of Guinea, which preceded modern C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire, it attracted populations from all parts of Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean Levant.
